Prickly, Tender and Steamy: Artists in the Hothouse at Wave Hill presents a diverse range of multi-media works created by artists who have closely examined and interpreted Wave Hill’s 'living collections' in the Marco Polo Stufano Conservatory. Featured artists include Manuel Acevedo, Gabriela Albergaria, Carrie Beckmann, Susan Benarcik, Matthew Burcaw, Asuka Hishiki, Nick Lamia, Lina Puerta, Naomi Reis, Anne-Katrin Spiess, Linda Stillman, James Walsh and Marion Wilson. All worked on-site during Winter Workspace Program residencies between 2010 – 2013.
Displaying a wide variety of mediums and methods, the exhibition aims to invigorate the (visual and tactile) connections between the realm of the gallery and the plant species in Wave Hill's Tropical, Palm and Cactus | Succulent houses.
