Description


The Ronald Feldman Gallery, in cooperation with the New York City Department of Sanitation, will present the work of Mierle Laderman Ukeles at the gallery’s booth (1116) at Pier 94 in the 2007 Armory Show. An artist who works in the public domain, Ukeles conceptualized the term “Maintenance Art” in 1969 after child-birth, which she has applied to the home, all kinds of service work, the urban environment, and the sustenance of the earth itself. Her thirty-year-long artist-in-residency, official and unsalaried, in the Department of Sanitation was referred to in the Winter 2002-2003 Public Art Review as among the great public art works of our time.
