Maren Hassinger ’69
A site-specific sculpture, Monument 6 (Square) is one of eight such installations by New York-based
artist and alumna Maren Hassinger that comprise the exhibition Maren Hassinger: Monuments. The work was installed for one year, beginning in June 2018 and ending this June, in Marcus Garvey Park in Harlem, New York. The artist and a group of volunteers from The Studio Museum in Harlem tightly layered and wove tree branches together to create Monument 6 (Square), molding its shape to respond to the park’s landscape. The exhibition was presented by The Studio Museum in partnership with the Marcus Garvey Park Alliance and NYC Parks. Maren Hassinger: Monuments will travel to the deCordova Sculpture Park in Lincoln, Massachusetts, in August. Maren Hassinger is represented by Susan Inglett Gallery, NYC.
Maren Hassinger will conduct an interactive workshop at Reunion this year. Visit bennington.edu/reunion
