Davina Semo: Reverberation
Public Art Fund Talks are presented in partnership with The Cooper Union.

Davina Semo creates artworks that explore our relationship to industrial materials and to the environments we inhabit. Her sculptures engage audiences and encourage greater awareness of our surroundings by highlighting the role of the individual in shaping our world.

Semo’s free virtual conversation with Public Art Fund Curator Daniel S. Palmer on November 16 accompanies Reverberation, the artist’s largest commission to date. This public art installation consists of five cast bronze bells along the waterfront promenade of Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pier 1, recalling the maritime communication once common at this waterfront site.

Her exhibition builds upon the turbulence of this year -- from the transformation of our lives by the COVID-19 pandemic to the groundswell of support for the Black Lives Matter movement. Semo’s vibrant orange bells signal urgency but also encourage audiences to add their own optimistic contribution to our urban soundscape. This conversation will offer insight into the process of creating this new large-scale installation and the impact of these interactive bells in a public setting.
