Site Responsive Installations on Georges Island
Georges Island is home to Fort Warren, an awe‐inspiring pentagonal fortification that defended the Harbor from 1861 through the end of WWII. The decommissioned space is full of seemingly endless tunnels, caverns, ruins and secret hideaways to explore. A select group of regional artists and collectives will create site‐responsive work inspired by the 41.3 acres of built and natural environment.
Not solely tethered to the fort’s structure at the heart of the island, artists will be encouraged to activate all regions of the terrain. From the heavily trafficked parade ground, to the placid Eastern shore, visitors will be invited to explore the far reaches of Georges’ diverse landscape.
Cove is an unprecedented opportunity in New England to experience contemporary work living in harmony with a historical island site. Dynamic installations from some of our region’s most talented artists will introduce an entirely new demographic to Georges and complement the island’s rich intrinsic offerings.
