SculptureCenter present Tue Greenfort: Garbage Bay on view November 10, 2013–January 27, 2014.

Tue Greenfort’s interdisciplinary practice deals with the overlap of public and private realms, natural and cultural history. For Garbage Bay, Greenfort is producing a new body of work that considers art’s role in reaffirming and dismantling assumptions about nature and the environment.

Through extensive research, discussions with experts, artists and environmentalists, the exhibition and artwork presented examine the site of Jamaica Bay, a marshland that spans the boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens in New York City. Greenfort’s exhibition and the discussions hosted around it will seek to uncover parallels and contextualize relationships between art, ecology, and politics, using the actualities of the specific site of Jamaica Bay, as well as its broader implications.
