Awesome stuff like this make me want to move to NYC….
What: Four temporary, public art exhibitions, lasting four days, beginning October 16, 2008 and ending on October 19, 2008.
How: Four 20ft x 8ft shipping containers will be placed curbside, near two separate major art institutions. Artists Monica Canilao, Maya Hayuk, Greg Lamarche and Anthony Lister will each be given a container to create an installation.
Why: The title of the exhibition: Contain, is an examination into the perspective of how public art / street art is translated indoors. Each artist will explore definitions for the word, contain:
- To have within; hold.
- To be capable of holding.
- To have as component parts; include or comprise.
- To hold or keep within limits; restrain.
- To halt the spread or development of.
- To check the expansion or influence of a hostile power or ideology by containment.
