Traces Crossing the Sand is an art installation at
Governors Island’s Nolan Park, Building 10B, New York, NY 10004 and will be on display
until Sunday, September 15, 2019, at 12:00 pm.
The West Harlem Art Fund (WHAF) is returning to Governors Island in 2019 with two exhibitions that will spotlight human migration across Asia and then west from Africa to the Americas. The organization is working with the Eli Klein Gallery based in the West Village, the Aicon Contemporary Art Gallery based in the East Village/SoHo area and the Catinca Tabacaru Gallery in the Lower East Side to realize these exhibitions for the public in Nolan Park. And in addition to visual art, WHAF will present a tasting kitchen to compliment the shows and a dance fellow, Kiran Rajagopalan to present live performances. A Japanese native, New York-based artist Tomo Mori will create the installation for the tasting kitchen and adjoining dining room. Trace of Our Journey – This mural is a composition of millions of life moments, presented as mosaic pieces made from vintage and discarded fabrics from all over the world. The square shapes harken back to filmstrips or digital pixels recording memories of human history. Free!
