Challenge 2015: Post War Blues at the Brooklyn Army Terminal


About Isabelle Garbani:

After working for 7 years as a commercial Digital Artist, I returned to graduate school where I received an MFA in sculpture from the New York Academy of Art in 2004. I now work in mixed media, using feminine crafts such as knitting, crochet and lace with recycled materials.

I have exhibited extensively in the New York metropolitan area and the Northeast. Among my exhibitions are Arte! Beaux-Arts! Kunst! at Payne Gallery in PA in 2007, the Third Annual Summer Exhibition at the New York Academy of Art in 2009, and Younger Than Moses at the Benrimon Gallery in New York City in 2010. I had my first solo exhibit in 2008 at the Earlville Opera House and my second in 2011 at BoxHeart Gallery in Pittsburgh.

Among my installations are Knit for Trees on Governors Island in New York City in 2011, Knit for Trees in Heckscher Park in Huntington, Long Island in 2012, Forces of Nature at the Carving and Sculpture Center in Vermont in 2011, and Invasive Species for Open Source Gallery in 2011 in Brooklyn. I was awarded an artist residency for the Cheng-Long International Environmental Art Project in Taiwan in 2012, where I exhibited Invasive Species. Upon my return to the US, I was awarded a studio residency with Chashama in Brooklyn.
