“Sedimentations: Assemblage as Social Repair at The 8th Floor Gallery, The Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation in NYC
Organized by curatorial team Sara Reisman, George Bolster and Anjuli Nanda through December 8, 2018
Exhibition featuring artists who employ strategies of reuse in their artmaking, include artworks by El Anatsui, Maren Hassinger, Elana Herzog, Samuel Levi Jones, Mary Mattingly, Lina Puerta, Michael Rakowitz, Jean Shin, Shinique Smith, Mierle Laderman Ukeles, Roberto Visani, and Michael Kelly Williams.
Artworks in the exhibition are embedded with content such as cultural heritage and preservation, technological obsolescence, spiritual engagement, sustainable ecology, the impacts of gun culture on the environment, and more generally, social responsibility, using artifacts of human existence to reinterpret the cycles of creation, consumption, and waste.

Her works have been shown at more than 150 museums and cultural institutions, including in solo exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Fabric Workshop and Museum, Philadelphia; and the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, DC.
