As part of the exhibition Heart to Hand, curated by Pati Hertling, the artists Elias Hansen and Oscar Tuazon are taking apart the SI's platform and building in situ sculptures. The exhibition opens March 6, 2012 at 6PM.
Conceived of in the wake of the #occupywallstreet movement and the Republican primaries, Pati Hertling’s exhibition Heart to Hand addresses the relationship between aesthetics and social conscience. At first sight, the selected artworks are formally abstract, yet upon further meditation, their conceptual disobedience is revealed. The works in this exhibition suggest and provoke political themes yet leave the response and action to the public.
Heart to Hand features works by Zoe Leonard, Klara Liden, Adam Pendleton and Oscar Tuazon/Elias Hansen
