February 23 – David Brooks
David Brooks was born 1975 in Brazil, Indiana, and currently lives and works in New York City. He was featured in the PS1 MOMA Greater New York 2010 show, and was a recipient of the prestigious Marie Walshe Sharpe studio program. His work explores ecological crisis through physical collisions of natural and manufactured materials. Most recently, he has been planting living trees in cement, allowing this literally living sculpture to die over the course of the exhibition.
