Green Habitat art exhibition NYC

Green Habitat @ President's Gallery, John Jay College

April 25th - June 30th, 2018. 

John Jay College of Criminal Justice will host the exhibition "Green Habitat", a group show to include works of artists from around the world on the theme of sustainable or ecology-based art.

  Thalia Vrachopoulos, the exhibition's curator, describes it with these poetic words:

"Joan Giordano, in her Deforestation Birch Forest sculpture, also addresses the field of sustainable art. Her wall sculpture with its wing-like span reaches out to us, much in the same way a mother would embrace her child, a very apt analogy of nature as nurturer. The work is created out of the cast off reddish-brown bark of young birch trees."

The show presents the work of 8 contemporary artists, featuring photography, painting, mixed media and sculptures with each artist pushing the boundaries in their own unique way. Tombstones are brought to life, metals twist into provocative images, marble and glass take on appealing shapes, images bleed together and the sky becomes a voyeur.

Sculpture Magazine - March 2017

Thalia Vrachopoulos reviews Joan Giordano's recent exhibition "Woven in Time", hosted at the June Kelly gallery, NYC. 

"Joan Giordano's recent exhibition "Woven in Time" spoke to both the history of art and postmodern phenomena. Her constructions, which straddle the boundaries of painting, college and sculpture, can be compared to Kurt Schwitters's Merz assemblages [...]"
