If These Walls... A.I.R. Gallery and UNY on Governor's Island

Underwater New York is thrilled to partner with A.I.R. Gallery for a day of history, art and poetry on Saturday September 12th in the exhibition, If These Walls...

A.I.R. Gallery, which has been advocating for women in the visual arts since 1972, is transforming one of the 19th century houses in Governor's Island's Nolan Park with a series of site-specific works including painting, sculpture, photography, works on paper and more. Alongside their annual group exhibition will be the Underwater New York Project Room, where seven A.I.R. Gallery artists will be exhibiting work based on the NYC waterways.

On September 12th, at 3pm, UNY has invited three poets--Hossannah Asuncion, Morgan Parker and Katy Lederer--to read new work inspired by the visual art of Melissa Murray, Erica Stoller and Maxine Henryson. The reading will coincide with the Gallery's reception for the exhibition, as well as other exciting programming we'll announce soon.

Please mark your calendars for September 12th, 3pm, on Governor's Island! More details to come. Read more about the exhibition here
