Federico Uribe: Fantasy River

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Add to Calendar 01-06-2013 11-08-2013 15 Federico Uribe: Fantasy River In a summertime extravaganza, the Hudson River Museum presents a dramatic new 3-dimensional landscape - inspired by the dreams of artist Federico Uribe, acclaimed for his fascinating transformations of everyday objects into art. Witness how he creates sculptures, which are not "sculpted," but instead, constructed and woven in ways, curious and unpredictable, intricate and compulsive. A conceptual artist originally from Columbia, Uribe makes individual works and whole-room installations entirely from objects we see around us - shoes, colored pencils, hangers. Red, blue, yellow, a panoply of colors envelopes in this three-gallery display. For the Hudson River Museum, Uribe creates his site-specific installation, "Fantasy River," inspired by the dramatic rolling banks of the Hudson and the world's other great rivers. Filled with blossoming flowers, flying birds, dazzling sunshine, and the flowing "water" of a winding river, this installation, created from new and old materials, provides a spectacular theatrical experience in the Museum's central atrium. Uribe's art is a unique hybrid that resists classification. Watch how he uses the language of pop art to transform the objects of daily life, while tipping his hat to the history and tradition of classical art. Uribe studied art at the University of Los Andes in Bogota, and in 1988 moved to New York to study with acclaimed conceptual artist Luis Camnitzer. As part of his global vision, Uribe's career includes years of work in Cuba, Mexico, Russia, England and Miami.
