Bosco Sodi: Untitled
Bosco Sodi’s paintings and sculptures play with notions of experimentation and material spontaneity. In his latest installation, Sodi utilized the remains of sculptures damaged during Hurricane Sandy as a foundation to create new, durable artworks that could transcend the limits of time. The waterlogged remnants were clumped onto a circular base, creating a cluster of stalagmite shapes over a period of time, which were then cast in bronze. For Sodi, the physical process involved a balance of chance and minimal control, where the “goal is to find the accident that is achieved when many variables are involved.” The Bronx Museum will present all three sculptures on its North Wing terrace.

Rethinking the Garden Casita
Through January 11, 2015
From Puerto Rico to the South Bronx, the casita, or “little house” in Spanish, is the social centerpiece and focal point of many community gardens. New York Restoration Project (NYRP), in partnership with the Urban Air Foundation, enlisted TEN Arquitectos and engineers at Buro Happold to rethink the traditional casita as a modular kit of parts. Plans, sketches, renderings, and images of TEN Arquitectos’ design are on view at the Bronx Museum. Read more >
