Maya Lin Exhibition

Sunday, Jan 20, 2019

The title of the exhibition, curated by Miwako Tezuka, is A River Is a Drawing currently on view at the Hudson River Museum in Yonkers through January 20, 2019

The exhibition presents twelve works, with continuous focus on bodies of water, particularly the Hudson River. It begins in the lobby space with Pin River — Hudson Watershed, 2018, one of the largest in the series of her pin-river sculptures to date, composed of more than 20,000 pins. In the Museum's Courtyard, Reed River, 2018, an immersive installation is created from more than 200 bamboo reeds in the form of a 3D drawing of the Hudson River basin. Another outdoor installation, Concrete River, 2018, is on HRM's veranda and overhang looking out to the river vista. The piece connects existing cracks, holes, bumps on the grounds, by filling them in with painted silver lines, visually connecting the Museum's campus to the river.

The exhibition also includes an open-ended and invitational question What is Missing?, Maya Lin's ongoing interactive digital art project and environmental advocacy movement. A darkened gallery is dedicated to the multi-channel video projection, What Is Missing? — Hudson River Timeline, is a moving timeline composed of text and images narrating habitat changes and population fluctuations of various species in and around the Hudson River throughout history up to the present. As we experience effects of climate change with increasing frequency and intensity, it is urgent to become aware of what happened in the environment before and what is happening to it now. The exhibition gives form to the macrocosmic workings of nature, as embodied in the Hudson River, and brings its presence in an affective, human scale.
