Margaret Cogswell's "River Fugues: Moving the Water(s)" opens at the CUE Art Foundation
Since 2003, the main focus of Cogswell’s work has been an ongoing project that explores the increasingly politicized role of water.
NEW YORK, NY.- Moving the Water(s) interfaces elements of Cogswell’s previous project, Wyoming River Fugues with Ashokan Fugues, a new component that explores the New York City water supply system and the Catskill Watershed. Each River Fugues project is an individually unique installation which utilizes the musical structure of a fugue to weave together video, audio, and sculptural components into exhibitions exploring the interdependency of people, industry, and rivers.

From the artist’s statement: “In its most general aspect, a fugue involves musical lines that sound very different and move independently from each other, but sound harmonious when played simultaneously. My reason for using the fugue is because of its flexibility as a conceptual framework which can be applied to any set of components one is trying to integrate, be they sounds or images.”

Since 2003, the main focus of Cogswell’s work has been an ongoing project that explores the increasingly politicized role of water. Beginning with Cuyahoga Fugues (2003), the project has since led to a number of related commissions throughout the United States, including Hudson Weather Fugues at Wave Hill in the Bronx and Mississippi River Fugues at the Art Museum of the University of Memphis in Tennessee.

Each year, CUE invites ten artists and arts professionals from across the country to anonymously nominate artists whom they feel are actively creating innovative, challenging, and conceptually rigorous work. Nominated artists are invited to apply, and the final selection is made by an independent jury each fall. Through the solo exhibition program, CUE aims to present new and exceptionally strong work by under-recognized and emerging artists based in the United States, and is committed to exhibiting work of all media, genres, and styles. Nominators are selected annually by CUE’s Advisory Council.

CUE Art Foundation is a dynamic visual arts center dedicated to creating essential career and educational opportunities for emerging and under-recognized artists of all ages. Through exhibitions, arts education, and public programs, CUE provides artists and audiences with sustaining and meaningful experiences and resources. Major programmatic support for CUE is provided by CAF American Donor Fund, Anholt Services (USA) Inc., Agnes Gund, The Joan Mitchell Foundation, New York Community Trust, The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, National Endowment for the Arts, public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council, and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
