Opening party for Walker’s Spoilery
- 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm | Wednesday September 14, 2022
- Gallery | Ace Hotel New York
Children’s Museum of the Arts is pleased to invite families to an opening reception for Walker’s Spoilery on Wednesday, September 14 from 6 PM to 8 PM. The exhibition will be on view in the Gallery at Ace Hotel New York from September 14 to October 14, 2022. Guests will be treated to a limited open bar, which will convert to a cash bar later in the evening.
Walker’s Spoilery presents a selection of small and strange sculptures made from materials such as coral, fossil, and snail shells, all gathered around the New York City area, as well as short films documenting Walker’s foraging and studio process.
The word “spoilery” has two meanings — the content collected by dredging a lake or mining land, as well as the treasures and wealth looted during battle. These works in this exhibition are all made using foraged material, inciting curiosity and fantasy in their intentional exploration of the liminal space between reality and make-believe.
Walker is a South Florida-born, New York-based sculptor and video artist. The videos are directed by Children’s Museum of the Arts Artist-Educator Frank Traynor. Walker’s long standing collaborative practice with Frank includes diaristic video-based investigations of nature, art and community.
