Ilana Halperin: Minerals of New York

Ilana Halperin: Minerals of New York

Details

Originally from New York, Ilana Halperin studied for her MFA at Glasgow School of Art, and now works between Glasgow and the Isle of Bute.

Her research-practice is internationally oriented, with a deep time focus, and explores the relationship between geology and everyday life. For Leeds Arts University, Halperin’s latest body of work, ‘Minerals of New York’, takes the form of a mineral biography of the city.

In Halperin’s own words: _“The project began with an encounter with the Subway Garnet, a huge historic blood red mineral found on 35th Street and Broadway. It led me deep into the stores of the American Museum of Natural History, to a personal mineral museum in the basement of a small bungalow in Queens, and back again, to a piece of Garnetiferous Gneiss found 150 feet below the street where I grew up in New York City.”_

Minerals of New York will include a closing performance lecture by Halperin, before touring to The Hunterian, University of Glasgow, in summer 2019.

Opening night Thursday 28 March 5-7pm
Free entry. Refreshments will be served and everyone is welcome. Booking not required.
