Spaces of Uncertainty

March 21 – April 30, 2019

SOUBANNERValeri Larko Abandoned Bronx Golf Center II

Immersing themselves, and by extension the viewer, in landscapes of derelict graffiti-covered buildings, vacant lots and shuttered storefronts, artists Valeri Larko and Linda Kuehne expose the unexpected pathos and poetic beauty of these marginal areas. In our highly programmed built environments, these uncertain spaces are mostly overlooked or ignored as they await redevelopment. To the passer-by they might appear empty, abandoned, even dangerous; but by forcing us to look more closely, the artists expose fleeting histories and hidden narratives, revealing spaces that are in fact brimming with life and potential. Curated by Isabelle Schiavi.
