ANKHLAVE GARDEN FELLOWS 2020

In the Queens Botanical Gardens


​This year AnkhLave received an organizational grant from the Queens Art Fund for our 6 artist fellows to receive funding to create work that will stay up until 2021.  Due to COVID-19, their live demonstrations and talks were in jeopardy due to quarantine restrictions preventing the possibility for an audience. The Queens Botanical Gardens had closed to the public until further notice, and AnkhLave needed to figure out a way to present the work to the largest audience possible in these uncertain times. AnkhLave worked out an agreement with the Queens Botanical Gardens to allow the artists to come install on site and be interviewed about their work for a documentary that we are producing. Individual extended interview vlogs will be posted on the Queens Botanical Gardens website and the Ankhlave website, as well as social media, and a short documentary film that will be released by the end of 2020. The installations will also remain up until the end of the year, leading to an exhibition in the Queens Botanical Garden Gallery featuring articles from each of their works.
