Lori Inside Out Curtain

 
 

"Whimsically turning the gallery inside-out, this site specific installation brings the art into the public realm."

 
 

This project is a site specific response,whimsically turning its surroundings inside-out. The exterior Mylar curtains are part of a domestic vocabulary, a window dressing which contrasts the industrial history of the neighborhood. The reflective quality of the piece moves introspection from within the "frame" of the neutral art space to the street, where it captures attention from afar, and its appearance changes throughout the day.

The Open Window Project was conceived as a project space by which to showcase the work of emerging artists andthose artists who may not necessarily fit into the gallery's program. While the gallery has always maintained the tradition of representing a focused group of core artists, it is excited about the ways in which working with other artists through the Open Window Project will enhance the dialogue surrounding the gallery's primary agenda. The Open Window Project occupies the street front window on Tenth Avenue between 18th and 19th Streets. This is the
artists’ first solo-exhibition with Lori Bookstein Fine Art.
