Work in Progress | September 27, recommended by Paul Petrunia
On Tuesday, September 27th, a green construction fence will close Storefront for Art and Architecture and a LL47 sign will illustrate its future development. On the new walls, over 25 LL47 signs commissioned to artists, designers, and architects will depict alternative visions of ongoing construction sites throughout New York City, offering a space of reflection and critique of current development practices and the architectures that build them. A photographic survey of works in progress throughout the city, will depict this new naturalized green New York landscape, inviting us to think about the city that is growing with our times.
