Maren Hassinger: Monuments Parks It In Harlem

Maren Hassinger: Monuments will consist of eight site-specific sculptures installed for approximately one year in Marcus Garvey Park in Harlem, beginning in June 2018. Hassinger, who has been associated with the Studio Museum since 1984, is a Harlem-based multidisciplinary artist whose work, spanning performance, installation, sculpture, and video, are often meditations on nature and community. Working in the tradition of her earlier projects such as Wreath (1979), Hassinger will use branches to create forms that respond to aspects of the park’s landscape—an outcropping of rock, a triangle near flower beds, an oval near the pool. The artist will create the works with the assistance of volunteers from the Studio Museum’s Teen Leadership Council and Expanding the Walls program, so that Monuments will be a project made in Harlem and for Harlem.

Marcus Garvey Park is located along Madison Avenue between 120th and 124th Streets. Enter at any entrance to view Maren Hassinger: Monuments.

Maren Hassinger: Monuments is organized by Hallie Ringle, Assistant Curator, and is an inHarlem project presented by The Studio Museum in Harlem in partnership with the Marcus Garvey Park Alliance and NYC Parks.
