The Ashland

The Ashland is a new 53-story residential building situated in the Brooklyn Cultural District, steps from Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM). We were brought on by Gotham Organization and Jean-Gabriel Neukomm, Partner-In-Charge, SPAN Architecture, to curate artwork for the property’s lobby, amenities spaces, and outdoor terrace. In the lobby, a sweeping rope installation by Rachel Mica Weiss greets residents, while a “Murmuration” installation by Christina Watka whisks them inside, creating a one-of-a-kind experience for visitors and residents. A gold-leafed special commission by Adam Frezza & Terri Chiao sits at a dramatic focal point on the terrace.

“Christina Watka's hand-sculpted porcelain installation in the lobby creates a compelling visual narrative through spatial relationships, organic patterns, repetition, and reflected light.”

“Ky Anderson is a Brooklyn-based painter whose works consist of layered forms, colored washes, and line work, illustrating the visible and invisible connections between the weights, pulls, and supports of the landscapes we inhabit.”

“Adam Frezza & Terri Chiao's outdoor sculpture 'Puddle Lumps' consists of three colorful, lumpy plant forms that sit amidst a painted wooden puddle-shaped platform. Genuine gold-leafed fronds poke out from the sculptures, suggesting floral growth and catching the sunlight when viewed from different angles.”

“Amelia Midori Miller's abstract paintings are inspired by her upbringing in a densely populated urban setting, reflecting the bustling nature of The Ashland's neighborhood.”
