About The Exhibition

New York-based artist Mary Mattingly works in various media to explore issues around sustainability, climate change, and consumerism. She is best known for creating sculptural ecosystems such as Swale, a floating food forest that was open to the public as it traveled through the harbors of New York City. The exhibition in Staniar Gallery will present a series of photographs and sculptures from an ongoing series in which the artist wraps up collections of personal objects into dense bundles that comment on consumption, waste, and the environment. Mattingly's work has been exhibited at institutions such as Socrates Sculpture Park, International Center of Photography, the Brooklyn Museum, Palais de Tokyo, Seoul Art Center among many others. She has been profiled in various documentaries and publications such as Art21 and The New York Times. Mattingly is a 2023 Guggenheim Fellow and other notable grants include the James L. Knight Foundation, the Harpo Foundation, and New York Foundation for the Arts.
