The EY Exhibition: The World Goes Pop

September 17, 2015 - January 24, 2016

This explosive exhibition connects the dots between art produced around the world during the 1960s and 1970s, showing how different cultures and countries responded to the movement. The exhibition reveals how pop was never just a celebration of western consumer culture, but was often a subversive international language of protest – a language that is more relevant today than ever.

Politics, the body, domestic revolution, consumption, public protest, and folk – all are explored and laid bare in eye-popping Technicolor and across many media, from canvas to car bonnets and pinball machines.

Chance Ecologies: The Wild Landscape of Hunter's Point South

December 17, 2015 - January 21, 2016

Chance Ecologies: The Wild Landscape of Hunter’s Point South displays the results of a daring summer-long experimental art project on a large plot of publicly owned land in Hunter’s Point, Long Island City, Queens. The accidental post-industrial landscape, predominantly disused for the last 35 years, harbored a rich unplanned ecology that participating artists explored through a series of secret temporary installations, performances, and research interventions. Located in the mouth of Newtown Creek, a federal Superfund site, and facing magnificent views of Midtown Manhattan across the East River, the site embodies the paradoxes of man-made ecological crisis and the continued drive towards the production of human habitats.

Exhibited in the form of photographs, videos, installations, documentation, elaborations of processes, speculative proposals, and an archive of plants and materials, Chance Ecologies is a platform for artists and thinkers to creatively explore the value of wild places in the city, uncovering and mapping their layered histories and the natural ecologies that have evolved in them.
