Linda Cunningham

For 15 years, Linda Cunningham has been documenting the changing urban landscape of the Bronx, most recently through shredded drywall sculptures that reckon with memory, loss, and survival. Her sculptures record how nature permeates built environments, focusing on spaces where moisture invades architecture. Now, at a particularly contentious moment in the Bronx, her work finds new prescience and poignancy, engaging with transience and local history while questioning what remains and what is destroyed.
