Gail Biederman Spotlights the Bronx in 2012 Season’s Final Sunroom Project Open October 20 – December 2, 2012

Meet the Artist; November 11, 2012 in Glyndor Gallery, Gail Biederman creates a topographical web in the final Sunroom Project of 2012. Inspired by the intriguing similarities in the growth patterns of natural and built environments, Biederman’s Urban Canopy, an undulating map made from industrial and handmade felt, reflects the landscape and population density of the Bronx.

The solid areas of the piece correspond to the more inhabited sections of the Bronx, while the cutout areas relate to the borough’s surprisingly extensive amount of parkland. Maps of the Bronx often fail to capture this relationship between density and green space.

Biederman’s project aims to highlight this aspect of the Bronx in a material way. When suspended from the ceiling the Bronx cityscape will be altered into a vibrant and evocative form, interacting with the architecture and natural light of the room.

Wave Hill is also pleased to announce the artists selected for the 2013 Sunroom Project Space, in its seventh season. A panel identified six artists from 125 applicants: Jarrod BeckTerri Chiao and Adam Frezza,Matthew JensenLynn Koble and Alan Ruiz.

This diverse group of emerging New York-area artists will create site-specific projects, representing a range of artistic practices. Place and context are of particular interest to these artists, who will transform the visitors’ experience of the space while considering the relationship to the garden and Wave Hill’s site.

Their projects reflect a prevailing fascination with the interaction between people and nature and the intersection of the man-made and natural environments. Selection is underway for two Van Lier Visual Artist Fellows, who will also participate in next year’s Sunroom Project Space.

Organized by Assistant Curator Gabriel de Guzman, the Sunroom Project Space provides an opportunity for New York-area emerging artists to exhibit site-specific work in a solo show. The Sunroom Project Space is supported in part by the Milton & Sally Avery Arts Foundation and The New York Community Trust.

Additional support for the Visual Arts Program is provided by Anonymous, the Lily Auchincloss Foundation, Inc., and with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. The New York City Department of Cultural Affairs provides sustaining support for Wave Hill.
