Wild, Wild Earth
Presented in partnership with NYFA Immigrant Artist Mentoring Program
Wild, Wild Earth is a group exhibition co-curated by Yanira Castro, Martita Abril, and Dain DeltaDawn that assembles artists from the New York Foundation for the Art’s Immigrant Artist Mentoring Program who are re-imagining and re-assigning the world in which they exist. Locating “wildness” inside the un-singular, the un-predictable, inside a process of coding/decoding/re-coding for the purpose of profusion, the artists of Wild, Wild Earth look at cityscape, materials and nature as fantasy for meaning making. The artists in the exhibit include Valeria Carboni, Riaki Enyama, Ana Maria Farina, Nazanin Noroozi, Masahito Ono, Htet T San, Beverly Tu and Chen Wang. Wildness, anthropologist Michael Taussig proposes, is “the death space of signification.” It cannot mean because it has been cast as that which exceeds meaning. Wild, Wild Earth proposes a vibrant, electric excess.
Exhibition runs from August 8th – September 6th. Please join us for an opening reception on August 8th at 6 PM.
