"What is great about public sculpture is that it is a democratic monument, because if you want to see painting you can, but if you don't want to see any of that, and just play on it, you can too." - Artist Harold Ancart on his interactive work of art currently on view at Cadman Plaza Park, "Subliminal Standard."

“My studio is the whole community” - Daniel Lind Ramos
.
.
In the latest installment of our #WhitneyBiennial series we traveled to Loiza, Puerto Rico to speak with artist Daniel Lind Ramos about his piece, “Maria-Maria” and the ways he gathers, sews, ties and assembles found objects as a means of remembering Puerto Rico’s past and present.

Directed by Noah Therrien

"I take personal experiences and use them to create visual symbols. My studio is the whole community." In episode three of our Whitney Biennial video series, we travel to Loíza, Puerto Rico, to visit Daniel Lind-Ramos in his studio. Lind-Ramos uses found materials from all over his community to create assemblages that engage with Puerto Rico's history and present-day life.

His sculpture “Maria-Maria” refers to both the Virgin Mary and the 2017 Hurricane Maria. “1797: Vencedor” and "Sentinels" recall the British invasion of San Juan, which was thwarted in part thanks to the Black militia of Loíza and Cangrejos. Visit bit.ly/2KoaetO to view the full episode.

#levygorvy #carolrama #eyeofeyes

GALLERIES: All Eyes Are on Carol Rama | ⭐️ Watch the 📺 on DailyPlinth.com ⭐️ Link in Bio ⭐️ | In the last several years, the work of artist Carol Rama has been receiving something of a well–deserved reassessment, not dissimilar to the recent exploding of interest in Hilma af Klint. As af Klint’s revitalization was sparked by a series of exhibitions culminating now at the Guggenheim in New York, Rama was also something of an outsider artist who was mostly pigeonholed and overlooked as such until recently, including a groundbreaking retrospective at the New Museum in 2017. Now, Rama is featured in a critically-acclaimed exhibition at Lévy Gorvy in New York, 'Eye of Eyes,' through April 10, 2019. This video gives us a look around the exhibition, and we hear curator Flavia Frigeri and Dominique Lévy speak about what made Rama’s work so radical in her time, and still so relevant today.
