It's summer time! Whether you plan to party at outdoor concerts or chill inside a museum, there are plenty of fun architecture and design events happening throughout New York City during these warmer months. Bustler rounded up a snappy list of ongoing and upcoming events around town that we think are worth checking out. Read on for our latest weekly event recommendations.
“Hide & Seek”, the winning installation of MoMA PS1's 2018 Young Architects Program, is now open to the public through September 3. Designed by Minneapolis-based practice Dream the Combine, the interactive installation includes a large-scale network of mirrors, runways, and trampolines, and will host more than 75 musical artists during MoMA PS1's “Warm Up” summer series.
MoMA PS1 presents Yayoi Kusama’s site-specific installation of “Narcissus Garden” (1966–present) as the third iteration of the free public art festival, “Rockaway!”. Comprised of 1,500 mirrored stainless steel spheres, Narcissus Garden is on view in a former train garage that dates to the time when Fort Tilden was an active US military base.
The first US retrospective of Kingelez’s work, the exhibition spans his full career, from early single-building sculptures, to spectacular sprawling cities, to futuristic late works, which incorporate increasingly unorthodox materials. These rarely shown works are a call for us all to imagine, in the artist’s words, a “better, more peaceful world.”
It's the final week of the New Practices New York 2018 exhibition, which presents works by the winners of the AIANY’s 2018 New Practices New York competition. The jury chose young, emerging firms that are actively and constructively engaging with their city, society, and context.
In this workshop, you will develop a branding system for a line of packaged ice cream concoctions (known to the trade as “frozen novelties”). Co-sponsored with Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, this workshop draws inspiration from the exhibition The Senses: Design Beyond Vision, currently on view at the museum. This one-day course is a great way to spark your creativity, find new inspiration, and create a chill new portfolio piece.
Don't miss out on this exhibition, which introduces the exceptional work of socialist Yugoslavia’s leading architects to an international audience for the first time, highlighting a significant yet thus-far understudied body of modernist architecture, whose forward-thinking contributions still resonate today.
In her book “Sculpture in Gotham”, art historian Michele H. Bogart will discuss how public art became socially and politically relevant during a time when art theories and styles were evolving dramatically and when local government was overwhelmed with economic decline and civil rights issues.
Following the map plan of both original fairgrounds, this two-hour walking tour will include such sights as the Queens Museum (formerly NYC Pavilion), Philip Johnson’s NY State Pavilion, the Unisphere (exact site of the Trylon and Perisphere), Port Authority Heliport, the Westinghouse Time Capsule, and the Hall of Science.
