A Lot of Possibilities: a presentation and discussion by artists on their work in New York City’s community gardens
Saturday, September 18, 2010, 2PM – 5PM
W. 104th St. Community Garden, 6 W. 104th St., New York, NY 10025 (between Central Park West and Manhattan Avenue)
In case of rain, this event will take place at WinterSpace, 15 W. 103rd St., #4D
A Lot of Possibilities is a project by artist Anna Lise Jensen that aims to place contemporary artists’ work in New York City’s community gardens, and to create a dialogue between artists, gardeners and city officials. The desire to turn these gardens into partial sculpture gardens is driven both by aesthetic sensibility as well as municipal strategy: by adding the layer of cultural site, the community gardens stand a greater chance against future demolition.
On Sep. 18th. some of the participating artists will discuss their projects (implemented or in process,) including Norbert Francis Attard, Suzanne Broughel, Alyssa Casey, Jennifer Sitron, Petra Valentova and Virginia Vergara. There will also be picnic food for all (performed by Valentova,) the premiere of Jonathan Velardi’s Flamingo Parade (inspired by the W. 104th St. Garden and selected to be part of Pixel Pops in October) and Christopher Blacker will play his torch song for the gardens.
From September 13th – 18th, Anna Lise Jensen will tweet on two artists, Norbert Francis Attard and Jennifer Sitron, discussing and installing their work in Manhattan Valley gardens. In addition, she will be updating on the search for an amenable garden wall-owner for Velardi’s 30 feet Flamingo Parade and visiting local cafes to set up a display area for prints and information on A Lot of Possibilities. The tweets will also announce daily sites for gatherings and food where interested parties are welcome.
