The Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation is pleased to announce Sedimentations: Assemblage as Social Repair, a new exhibition featuring artists who employ strategies of reuse in their artmaking. On view at The 8th Floor from June 21 through December 8, 2018, the show will include artworks by El Anatsui, Maren Hassinger, Elana Herzog, Samuel Levi Jones, Mary Mattingly, Lina Puerta, Michael Rakowitz, Jean Shin, Shinique Smith, Mierle Laderman Ukeles, Roberto Visani, and Michael Kelly Williams. Artworks in the exhibition are embedded with content such as cultural heritage and preservation, technological obsolescence, spiritual engagement, sustainable ecology, the impacts of gun culture on the environment, and more generally, social responsibility, using artifacts of human existence to reinterpret the cycles of creation, consumption, and waste.
