ON[VIEW] DARIO MOHR

Spring, 2021,the West Harlem Art Fund will present Dario Mohr on Governors Island.

Look out for our official notice when it’s safe to view art in person at our Exhibition Space NP/10.

Dario Mohr is a New York City based interdisciplinary artist. Born in 1988, Mohr received a BFA from Buffalo State College (2010), and an MFA from The City College of New York (2019).  He combines nostalgic personal objects of varying heights with found materials to form shrines. These occupy the space in varying ways, leaning against walls, hanging from the ceiling, and existing as free standing sculptures with an architectural aesthetic.  They also contain altars with organic offerings, symbolically designating them as devotional objects.  Although created from a personal vantage point, the work functions publicly to open the audience’s perspective to ways they can reimagine nostalgic objects as symbols for memories, people, and experiences that can take on a spirituality of their own when revered in a way that is decontextualized from religion. He is also the founder and Director of AnkhLave Arts Alliance, Inc. which is a non-profit for the recognition and representation of people of color, particularly indigenous communities around the world.
