Mary Miss: City as Living Laboratory, Hartford, an important exhibition of work by internationally renowned artist Mary Miss focused on the ideas of environmentalism, sustainability, responsibility, and collaboration. The exhibition explored recent works in Miss’ City as Living Laboratory framework, as well as precedent projects and examples of Miss’ sculptural legacy. A site-specific, multi-part installation was created by Miss to bring attention to the University of Hartford’s section of the Park River and its watershed. This installation was modeled after Miss’ current river-centered project underway in Indianapolis, IN tiled FLOW (Can You See the River?). The Park River FLOW project consisted of twenty oversize, sculptural map pins set into the land along the Park River as it flowed through the campus.
Mary Miss: City as Living Laboratory, Hartford was curated by Lisa Gaumond.
