CURRENTS: ABORTION


The 5th edition of CURRENTS presents an exhibition in which artists respond to the theme of ABORTION. In this turbulent moment in history, abortion remains a signifier of people's ownership over their bodies, being as urgent a subject as any of the issues that now consume us.
 
The exhibition includes depictions of choice, loss, and anger; works of fecundity, disease, shame, and pain; images of helplessness and of power. There are pieces that reach into the past to demonstrate ways in which women used abortifacients, as well as work that is pro life and religious. All these propositions are united in the gallery to create a space in which we listen to each other.

Now in its seventh year, the League’s Model to Monument Program (M2M) is a partnership with the New York City Parks Department.

Working in teams, participating artists Gaia Grossi, Damon Hamm, Robin M. Jordan, Frank Michielli, and Jeff Sundheim will create three monumental public sculptures addressing the theme of “The Wave,” to be installed at Riverside Park North at 145th Street.

Directed by Greg Wyatt, the program represents an extraordinary opportunity for the students, chosen through a competitive juried process in 2016.

This exhibit presents midsize-scale preparatory models for the M2M project.



Please join us for the opening reception and tour of this year's M2M sculptures!
