NYC Trash!: Past, Present, & Future Sculpture Garden

InstaTrashThe City Reliquary is located at

370 Metropolitan Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11211

Exhibition Dates: April 7-29, 2018

The City Reliquary’s sculpture exhibition — in conjunction with the museum’s current exhibit, NYC Trash!: Past, Present, & Future — presents the work of ten local trash artists whose works will be on display in the Reliquary’s backyard garden.

The spirit of NYC Trash! reinforces the notion that trash can and should be reused. The sculptures on display are site-specific and fabricated from refuse and found objects.

Through the use of trash as art, NYC Trash!: Past, Present, & Future Sculpture Garden highlights the need for continued conversation about our waste problem — especially in a metropolis like New York City — and allows visitors to look at trash as more than ephemera.

Artists include Bernard Klevickas (sculptures made from salvaged bicycle parts); Niki Lederer (colorful repurposed plastic turned into hanging pieces); Barbara Lubliner (Plastic Bottle Succulent Garden); Jeffrey Allen Price (making site-specific sculptures out of the by-products of art and life); Claudia Sbrissa (artwork inspired by landscapes); Tyrome Tripoli (sculpture representative of life journey and discovery); and Debbie Ullman (an urban intervention aimed at stimulating community engagement and interaction). For the opening, artist Mierle Laderman Ukeles’ 20 cubic-yard garbage truck faced with hand-tempered mirror titled The Social Mirror garbage truck will be parked outside the museum to allow the public to get up close and personal with New York’s trash removal devices.

Case Studies

IMGP05408Main Gallery, Gallery Aferro

February 10 – March 16, 2018
Curated by Evonne M. Davis
Opening Reception February 10th 7-10pm @ Gallery Aferro

Case Studies is a unique group exhibition in which artists have been invited to intervene with re-purposed, salvaged museum display cases. The majority of these cases were donated to Gallery Aferro by the George Washington Mt. Vernon Estate Museum, as well as from the New York Historical Society and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Large, elegant, dark wood displays, previously used for a traveling exhibition of objects from George Washington’s life, as well as plexiglass vitrines and pedestals, will be transformed by artists for a contemporary vision. Artists from across the East Coast will be participating, creating a diverse and unique experience for the viewers. This exhibition will create a dialogue between museum culture, gallery experimentation, and the artist’s voice.

Duality: Glimpses of the Other Side

duality open call 2017 Prospectus BGCurated by Scott Bluedorn
June 24 – October 15, 2017
Artist Reception June 24 from 7-10pm

The Islip Art Museum is pleased to announce the 2017 annual open call Duality: Glimpses of the Other Side. The 2017 annual open call asked artists to seek out what’s hidden behind the veil of perception to reveal chaos in the mundane, beauty in the ordinary, and depravity in the wholesome.

Understanding the duality of our world can be an enriching activity, reflecting it through art showcases the wit and playfulness of the mind. One’s perception of their surroundings is often skewed through their personal lens and individual worldview.

470 Vanderbilt Brooklyn, NY

Inspired by last-January’s Women’s Marches, where women and allies gathered in record numbers, the notion of “strength in numbers” can be felt throughout BIGGER, BOLDER, BETTER. Curators Jaynie, Crimmins, Christina Massey, and Etty Yaniv bring together fifteen women artists whose work utilize fragmentation, repetition, distinct use of daily ephemeral materials, and labor intensive processes.

Lorrie Fredette, Dana Kane, Niki Lederer, Susan Luss, Ellie Murphy, Mia Pearlman, Jaanika Peerna, Elizabeth Riley, Alyse Rosner, Carol Salmanson, Suzan Shutan, Jen Wrobalewski, Jaynie Crimmins, Christina Massey, Etty Yaniv, and Nancy Baker activate 470 Vanderbilt’s large storefront space with site specific installations, unexpected interventions, and overall manifestations of support and strength.
