Collective Ribbon: The Interwoven Voices of the Triangle Fire Memorial at NYU Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò

 

 

 

Exhibition ‘Collective Ribbon’ courtesy NYU Casa Italiana Zerilli-Mmarimo. Remember the Triangle Fire Coalition. The public was invited  to collectively create a 300 foot long ribbon, formed together from individual pieces of fabric, donated by the participants. This ribbon’s patterns and textures will be etched to the steel body of the permanent memorial and the stories of the participants will be archived at the Kheel Center at Cornell University. The images and videos below were taken at FIT on March 16 and 17 2019, when hundreds of volunteers gathered to sew together parts of the ribbon.

An exhibition presented by NYU Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò and Remember the Triangle Fire Coalition will be on view from October 9 to December 15th, curated by Richard Joon Yoko and Uri Wegman, Co-designers of the Triangle Fire Memorial.

Join NYU Abu Dhabi Institute in New York on March 7th for an exciting dialogue, presented by the Intersectional Feminist/Queer Studies Collective with 19 Washington Square North, and co-sponsored by the Grey Art Gallery.

Alongside the opening of the exhibition of work by Pakistani-American artist Shahzia Sikander at 19WSN, the gallery opens its doors to a dialogue between Sikander and Gayatri Gopinath (Director, Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality, NYU). Sikander’s photographs, initially taken in 2012, depict the ruin and desolation of a South Asian movie theater and its sole caretaker in Khorfakkan, Sharjah, and speak poignantly to the questions of home, displacement, belonging, and unbelonging that touch the lives of many South Asian migrants in the UAE.

The Grey Art Gallery, New York University’s widely admired fine arts museum, will move to larger quarters at 18 Cooper Square from its current location on Washington Square East. The move is due, in part, to a major gift from Dr. James Cottrell and Mr. Joseph Lovett, which was announced a year ago. Longtime art patrons, social activists, and downtown Manhattan residents, Cottrell and Lovett have already gifted some 40 works from their extensive collection of downtown New York artists. Fourteen works from the Cottrell-Lovett Collection are on view in the Grey’s current exhibition, Mostly New: Selections from the NYU Art Collection. The new Grey Art Museum at 18 Cooper Square will open in February 2024.
