Remediate/Re-vision show, now up at Wave Hill

Buster Simpson, 'The Monolith.' A public art installation created from the ruins of the Kutras Tract Aggregate Plant in Redding, CA, which was the source of aggregate used to construct nearby Shasta Dam.

The new exhibit at Wave Hill in the Bronx, called Remediate/Re-vision: Public Artists Engaging the Environment, opened on Sunday.  It showcases remediation- or sustainability-based public art projects since 2002 that have either been completed or are in the planning stages for parks and gardens.  Included in the show is Mierle Laderman Ukeles‘ proposal for PUBLIC OFFERINGS: MADE BY ALL REDEEMED BY ALL—a project inviting “Donor Citizens” to make material contributions to the Freshkills Park site to be archived and exhibited on-site as the park develops.

The line-up of artists also includes Lillian Ball, Jackie Brookner, Mags Harries and Lajos Héder, Natalie Jeremijenko, Patricia Johanson, Lorna Jordan, Matthew Mazzotta, Eve Mosher, Buster Simpson, Susan Leibovitz Steinman, Suzanne Lacy, Yutaka Kobayashi and George Trakas.

The show is up until November 28.
