Broadway Billboard: Chitra Ganesh | Socrates Sculpture Park, NY 5/12 - 8/4/13
Her Nuclear Waters, a work from Atlas (2013), has been produced as an 11 by 28 foot image for Socrates Sculpture Park’s Broadway Billboard exhibition series.
The work’s urban apocalyptic imagery resonates with the history and subsequent transformation of the exhibition site itself. Socrates Sculpture Park was an abandoned riverside landfill and illegal dumpsite until 1986 when a coalition of artists and community members transformed it into an experimental exhibition space and neighborhood park.
Broadway Billboard: Chitra Ganesh is the artist’s first billboard scale work presented in the United States. Previous billboards have been installed as part of This Modern World (Shanghai, 2010) and P28 (Lisbon & Porto, Portugal, 2012).
