Molly Dilworth

“The Lower East Side is a microcosm of New York City history. Just below the chaotic excitement of daily life, the existence of sacred ground, legendary battles and life-sustaining freshwater springs can be found on nearly every corner. My work often makes invisible things – including hidden in plain sight histories – visible; the Lower East Side is fertile ground for this work.”
Molly Dilworth is a Brooklyn-based artist who views creative practice as a form of research. Using data from a specific site as a structure, she gives form to things that invisibly motivate our actions. From rooftops to the Pedestrian plazas of Times Square, Dilworth has created outdoor site-specific paintings in New York City and exhibited across the United States. She has been a resident artist at the Salina Art Center in Kansas and in the Art & Law Program with the Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts in NYC. Her work will be included in Spontaneous Interventions: design actions for the common good in the U.S. Pavilion at the 13th International Venice Architecture Biennale.
