View from the window.
I'm curating a show of plop art on the roof of the Bari's Sunshine Hotel, next door to the New Museum, for when Jeff Koons' show is up. This show will only be visible from the big window at the landing of the John S. Wotowicz Stairs, inside the New Museum.
It has to be outdoor-okay stuff, nothing that will blow away, and it's fine if it is work that looks sad and miserable after a couple of months out in the cold on a possibly wet roof, possibly covered in snow. We will have no security, no insurance, and are anticipating no institutional support of any kind.
There will be a VIP preview opening the same night as Jeff's, with a BYOB reception on the landing... although it is unlikely any of the participating artists will be allowed in the museum for that. Sorry!
