NYU Wagner Gallery | 295 Lafayette Street
Please join us in celebrating the opening of Continuum, the Spring-2013 exhibition at the Gallery Space at Wagner. Staged in recognition of the 50th anniversary of NYU Wagner’s urban planning program, the exhibit features mixed-media works on canvas and a sculptural installation by Chilean architect and visual artist Rodolfo Edwards.
With Continuum, Edwards delves further into his current studio practice by creating a series of deconstructed city landscapes and abstract configurations informed by his study of architecture, cartography, and urban design. Rich in color and compositional rhythm, the works are vividly populated by a complex array of patterns, grids, hues, and meticulously selected photographic fragments extracted from recycled materials. The compositions resulting from this intermingling of collage and painting techniques are at once intricate studies on perspective and spatial management and an absorbing display of pictorial narratives.
Continuum is curated by Frankie Crescioni-Santoni and co-presented by the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development. The exhibit is co-sponsored by NYU Wagner’s Urban Planning Student Association (UPSA) and the Student Network Exploring Arts & Culture (SNEAC).
