Join us for our speaker series, Artist in Action, as we talk with regional artist Marion Wilson.
Through paintings, photographs, and installations Marion interrogates our relationship to nature at a time when extreme climate change threatens ecosystems, livelihoods, and communities. Wilson builds partnerships with botanists, architects, and urban communities reflecting collective skillsets.
Wilson founded MLAB and MossLab (a mobile eco/art lab in a student renovated RV – driving from Syracuse to Miami examining moss species) and 601 Tully – the renovation of an abandoned 1900 residence into a neighborhood art center in upstate NY. Most recently, Wilson re-furbished a houseboat in Vineyard Haven, MA called 100 Lagoon Pond as both her art studio and a public platform towards collective lagoon health.
Wilson has exhibited with New Museum of Contemporary Art, NYC; Frederieke Taylor, NYC; Herbert Johnson Museum at Cornell University; and PULSE and SCOPE Miami/Art Basel; as well as numerous commissions for public artworks.
Curated and moderated by Áine Mickey, in partnership with the Seward Johnson Atelier.
