For the seventh year, Randall’s Island Park Alliance and Bronx Museum of the Arts, in partnership with NYC Parks, present Flow. The exhibit for Flow.17 is artist Rose DeSiano’s site-specific installation entitled “Island of Empirical Data and Other Fabrications.” Using historical records, statistical data, photo archives and government documents, with a focus on Randall’s Island Park, the artist combines photographs with the historical data, exploring our culturally-constructed, complex histories. The installation displays an appreciation of the history and ecology of the island through artistic expression.
The two, large-scale, interactive photo panels also reflect the greenery of the Park, with the urban landscape as a backdrop. It also reflects all who stand before them.
Take a Flow.17 Photo Tour on Saturday, September 16 from 2pm-3pm.
The installation, “Island of Empirical Data and Other Fabrications, 2017,” will be on view through November, 2017, at the entrance to the Park at 103rd Street – to the left and right of the bridge off-ramp. Below are photos of the exhibit taken from different angels.
