Please join Chance Ecologies for a special presentation as part of the Brooklyn Public Library’s Democracy Lab at the Spacebuster.
Chance Ecologies: Grand Army Plaza Walk
Grand Army Plaza, Brooklyn
June 12, 6:00pm to 7:00pm
Presentations by curator Nathan Kensinger and artists Kristyna & Marek Milde, Edrex Fontanilla, Sarah Nelson Wright, and Matthias Neumann
Chance Ecologies is a public arts project that explores un-designed landscapes and wilderness found in New York City’s abandoned spaces, post-industrial sites, and landfills. Join one of the curators of Chance Ecologies, Nathan Kensinger, on a walk through the regulated and unregulated spaces that surround Grand Army Plaza, considering artistic responses to the wild plants and animals that have found a home in our dense urban environment. As part of the walk, artists duo Kristyna and Marek Milde will contribute a herbal drink made with plants gathered on their foraging trips and expeditions, Sarah Nelson Wright and Edrex Fontanilla will share a virtual-reality glimpse into distant chance ecological sites, and Matthias Neumann will engage with the idea of “invasive” and “illegal” species.
