Heidi Lau’s practice centers on the recreation of histories that have been lost to time. Colonial history, folk Taoist mythology and provincial superstitions provide essential source material through which her work explores homelessness and nostalgia. Painstakingly crafted and glazed by hand, her ceramic work is modeled after ritual objects, columns, funereal monuments, and fossilized creatures, while simultaneously deconstructing, and rebuilding these models into new hybrid forms.

Join us for a Bronx StorySLAM hosted by The Moth. Arrive by 7pm for the opportunity to put your name in The Moth “hat.”  At 7:30pm names are picked, and one by one, storytellers take the stage to tell a five minute story about the theme of the evening "ORIGINS". Of the ten featured storytellers, one winner is chosen.

 

Prepare a five-minute story about beginnings. Lightbulbs illuminating, shells cracking, cocoons giving way to metamorphosis. Transitions and transformations. Bring us your tales of catalysts big and small, from puberty to graduations or first crushes to experiments. The impetus, the springboard, your back story. Like every hero, we know you started somewhere.

 

Tickets are $10 and will be available two weeks prior to the event. Please check back for details.

Can photography change how we see our surroundings? What comprises a beautiful photograph? How can photography and history interrelate?

 

Join RIPA's selected 2017 FLOW artist Rose DeSiano to address these questions, and take some photographs of your own! We'll meet on 103rd Street Footbridge at 2:00pm to learn about this year's FLOW art pieces, discuss some of Randall's Island's history, and talk about photographic composition and story-telling. Bring your camera or camera phone (RIPA will also offer a few Polaroid cameras to borrow for the event) and spend the afternoon capturing Island images that you can take home with you. We hope you'll return throughout the year to continue your photographic journey on Randall's Island.


Free admission. All ages welcome!

 

The FLOW art series is planned in conjunction with the Randall's Island Park Alliance, the Bronx Museum and the New York Department of Parks and Recreation.
