Gallery Talk with Anita Glesta and Susan Hockaday- Free and Open to the Public!
Join the Arts Council of Princeton for an Gallery Talk with artists with Anita Glesta and Susan Hockaday moderated by curator Judith K. Brodsky.
This event is held in conjunction with Earth, Fire, Water, Ice, Debris: Five Artists Comment on the Environment, on view in the ACP’s award-winning Taplin Gallery.
ANITA GLESTA works in sculpture, video, and installation to create settings that engage people with the space around them physically and metaphorically. Her video installation, Watershed, included in this exhibition is a public art project that has been installed previously during the New Museum Ideas City Festival in New York City, and on the surface of the National Theater in London facing the Thames. It also was seen in 2017 in Red Hook, Brooklyn, as an immersive video on the streets of the community to commemorate the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Sandy. She has been a recipient of many grants and awards, among them a New York Foundation of the Arts fellowship, a Puffin Foundation grant, a Pollock/Krasner fellowship, and a New York State Council for the Arts New Media fellowship.
