Elaine Angelopoulus: WHEN THE GROUND BREAKS


A giant window map with arranged artifacts and ephemera loaned from residents of the neighborhoods surrounding Atlantic Yards pays homage to the local community dedicated to challenge big business and government dealings surrounding the Atlantic Yards Project.

Elaine Angelopoulos will conduct public events that focus on the construction project in process and in direct view across the street of Soapbox Gallery. Local residents are invited to record their stories to serve as an archive of their experiences on how the neighborhood has changed.

Angelopoulos has had a dynamic twenty plus year practice as an exhibiting artist and a collective practitioner amongst activist for civil liberties. She activates her installation works with performance to connect with her audience.

The Institute for Contemporary Art in Portland, Maine; Five Myles in Brooklyn; ABC No Rio in Manhattan; and the Bartlett School of Architecture in London are among the exhibition venues that have featured her work. Awards most noted are the Jerome Fellowship through Franconia Sculpture Park, Foundation for Contemporary Art, and an Honorarium from SUNY Plattsburgh.
