Wave Hill Calendar

Since coming to Wave Hill, I have really turned up the volume on summer. I walk through the gate in the morning, kick off my shoes and walk barefoot across the grounds to my office. In the afternoon, I eat lunch under the big linden tree that shades the picnic area adjacent to Glyndor Gallery, binoculars at my elbow. In the evening, I step outside and into the stillness. The birds are starting to settle, the sun is beginning to descend over the Hudson, the gardens are fragrant and glowing with color, and I just find it so hard to leave the property. I often sit down in a Wave Hill Chair and wait for the fireflies to rise—like my own private display of fireworks. And I think to myself, I have the best job in the world. Come and visit me here, and let Wave Hill work its magic on you. Gather together with your friends on the Great Lawn and listen to live music on a Sunset Wednesday. Experience the opulence of summer as I do, in the ease of this beloved garden. — KAREN MEYERHOFF, President & Executive Director

STEPHANIE BERGER

Dear Members and Friends, I think of summer as the season of freedom. The long days seem to unfetter me from the rigor of schedules and deadlines, and the sheer abundance of nature brings out my hedonistic streak.

Welcome!

STEPHANIE BERGER

SUNDAY

Welcome!

SATURDAY

Wave Hill Calendar

Since coming to Wave Hill, I have really turned up the volume on summer. I walk through the gate in the morning, kick off my shoes and walk barefoot across the grounds to my office. In the afternoon, I eat lunch under the big linden tree that shades the picnic area adjacent to Glyndor Gallery, binoculars at my elbow. In the evening, I step outside and into the stillness. The birds are starting to settle, the sun is beginning to descend over the Hudson, the gardens are fragrant and glowing with color, and I just find it so hard to leave the property. I often sit down in a Wave Hill Chair and wait for the fireflies to rise—like my own private display of fireworks. And I think to myself, I have the best job in the world. Come and visit me here, and let Wave Hill work its magic on you. Gather together with your friends on the Great Lawn and listen to live music on a Sunset Wednesday. Experience the opulence of summer as I do, in the ease of this beloved garden. — KAREN MEYERHOFF, President & Executive Director

A half-century after the emergence of Pop art as a revolutionary response to new norms of consumerism, Nature Pops! brings together work by artists who recalibrate this movement in contemporary terms. Continuing to reevaluate popular culture, particularly the increasing mediation of our experience by technology, artists question whether we can still have authentic engagements—even in the natural world. By viewing nature and the environment through a populist lens, Nature Pops! focuses on the relevance of this new work. Situating the show in Wave Hill’s garden location adds depth and dimension to the subject. Artists include Polly Apfelbaum, Roberley Bell, Justin Berry, JoAnne Carson, Kira Nam Greene, Laurie Hogin, Vandana Jain, Portia Munson, Emilio Perez, Amy Pryor and Shinique Smith.

Soil Searching

Sunroom Project Space

SAT, SUN, JUN 4, 5

THROUGH JULY 4

Dark Matters Art collective Dark Matters (artists Aimée Burg, Frank De León-Jones and Anna Ritsch) explores the intangible aspects of the natural world, including the spiritual, alchemical and mythical. The artists will transform the Sunroom into an interactive site for contemplating the invisible energy that fills the universe, connecting the living and the non-living. Visitors may concoct their own wishes at three stations. Meet the Artists: SUN, JUNE 5, 2PM JULY 12–SEPTEMBER 5

Amie Cunat and Joiri Minaya Considering the boundaries defining the Sunroom as an interior space from which to observe the natural world beyond, Amie Cunat seeks to challenge the way abstract, architectural structures define and shape our perceptions of natural and built environments. She creates hanging textile works and a site-specific wall painting using colors typical for game hunters, swathing the Sunroom in a kind of anti-camouflage. In the Sun Porch, Joiri Minaya’s installation of hanging objects depicts digitally-manipulated images found by searching “Dominican women” on Google. The images are of figures whose poses can be perceived as exotic and obedient to foreign fantasies, yet seeming assertive and self-confident. As viewers move through the space, they are encouraged to take and share selfies on social media. Meet the Artists: SAT, JULY 30, 2PM

A half-century after the emergence of Pop art as a revolutionary response to new norms of consumerism, Nature Pops! brings together work by artists who recalibrate this movement in contemporary terms.

By viewing nature and the environment through a populist lens, Nature Pops! focuses on the relevance of this new work. Situating the show in Wave Hill’s garden location adds depth and dimension to the subject. Artists include Polly Apfelbaum, Roberley Bell, Justin Berry, JoAnne Carson, Kira Nam Greene, Laurie Hogin, Vandana Jain, Portia Munson, Emilio Perez, Amy Pryor and Shinique Smith.

Soil Searching

Sunroom Project Space

SAT, SUN, JUN 4, 5

THROUGH JULY 4

Dark Matters Art collective Dark Matters (artists Aimée Burg, Frank De León-Jones and Anna Ritsch) explores the intangible aspects of the natural world, including the spiritual, alchemical and mythical. The artists will transform the Sunroom into an interactive site for contemplating the invisible energy that fills the universe, connecting the living and the non-living. Visitors may concoct their own wishes at three stations. Meet the Artists: SUN, JUNE 5, 2PM JULY 12–SEPTEMBER 5

Amie Cunat and Joiri Minaya Considering the boundaries defining the Sunroom as an interior space from which to observe the natural world beyond, Amie Cunat seeks to challenge the way abstract, architectural structures define and shape our perceptions of natural and built environments. She creates hanging textile works and a site-specific wall painting using colors typical for game hunters, swathing the Sunroom in a kind of anti-camouflage. In the Sun Porch, Joiri Minaya’s installation of hanging objects depicts digitally-manipulated images found by searching “Dominican women” on Google. The images are of figures whose poses can be perceived as exotic and obedient to foreign fantasies, yet seeming assertive and self-confident. As viewers move through the space, they are encouraged to take and share selfies on social media. Meet the Artists: SAT, JULY 30, 2PM

Dear Members and Friends, I think of summer as the season of freedom. The long days seem to unfetter me from the rigor of schedules and deadlines, and the sheer abundance of nature brings out my hedonistic streak.

Welcome!

STEPHANIE BERGER

SATURDAY

Wave Hill Calendar

Since coming to Wave Hill, I have really turned up the volume on summer. I walk through the gate in the morning, kick off my shoes and walk barefoot across the grounds to my office. In the afternoon, I eat lunch under the big linden tree that shades the picnic area adjacent to Glyndor Gallery, binoculars at my elbow. In the evening, I step outside and into the stillness. The birds are starting to settle, the sun is beginning to descend over the Hudson, the gardens are fragrant and glowing with color, and I just find it so hard to leave the property. I often sit down in a Wave Hill Chair and wait for the fireflies to rise—like my own private display of fireworks. And I think to myself, I have the best job in the world. Come and visit me here, and let Wave Hill work its magic on you. Gather together with your friends on the Great Lawn and listen to live music on a Sunset Wednesday. Experience the opulence of summer as I do, in the ease of this beloved garden. — KAREN MEYERHOFF, President & Executive Director
