Opening Reception: Sept. 6, 2:00-4:00

Artists’ Talk: October 18

Wave Hill’s celebration of illustrious residents comes to a close this fall with an exhibition and programs that are drawn from Theodore Roosevelt’s engagement with natural history. Roosevelt’s family spent the summers of 1870 and 1871 at Wave Hill when he was a 12 and 13 years old. Young Roosevelt was a burgeoning naturalist with a developed interest in birds, taxidermy and the study of nature. His interest in natural history nurtured during his youth and developed into his expansive role as a leading conservationist. This project-based exhibition features photographs, video, sculpture and installation from ongoing that look at natural history, collecting and display. Several  projects  are inspired by the dioramas at the American Museum of Natural History. Anticipated artists include Mark Dion, Hugh Hayden, Alexa Hoyer, Dana Levy, Ruth Marshall, Lori Nix, Jessica Segall, and Liselot van der Heijden.

 AMSTERDAM 27.10.12 – 24.11.12

OPENING: SATURDAY 27.10.2012 17:00 -19:00

With an introduction by art historian Stef van Bellingen at 17:30.

This autumn Galerie Ron Mandos will present a double exhibition with hyper-realistic paintings by the Flemish artist Cindy Wright and stunning video works by the Israeli video-artist and photographer Dana Levy.



Dana Levy explores in her work the relationship between the natural and the unnatural. For her video The Wake she filmed in the Carnegie Natural History Museum in Pittsburg, USA. Between the drawers of stuffed butterflies, accurately preserved in authentic wooden cabinets, the viewer sees one-hundred living butterflies. Their interaction creates a special tension in this video. Also on show will be her video The Fountain.

The exhibition will be introduced by art historian Stef van Bellingen (at 17:30 on the opening). Van Bellingen teaches contemporary art at various art institutions in Belgium and the Netherlands. As a curator, he is active in the Netherlands and abroad, where he works with both upcoming talent and established artists.
