Duane Linklater “From Our Hands”
This event has ended.
Duane Linklater’s exhibition From Our Hands features a series of new works including a large-scale architectural intervention that runs through all five galleries. This structural response explores the internal language of walls, the spaces for the Indigenous body, and how spaces of inclusion can be extended. The introduction of works by Duane’s late paternal grandmother Ethel Linklater and his twelve-year old son Tobias unearths his familial framework, the migration and exchange of knowledge and ideas, and their consequences.
Over the coming years I hope to build on the incredible work of the previous Director, artist Jonathan Berger and host you all at the gallery soon. We are part of the NYU Steinhardt Art School and located in Washington Square on the ground floor of the former Benedick building, which was originally designed in 1879 as housing for artists, architects and writers. 80WSE is a space for dialogue, experimental and cross-disciplinary projects by noted artists and curators, often produced in collaboration with faculty and students.
This forthcoming exhibition is presented in collaboration with Mercer Union in Toronto.
