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:

  1. To have within; hold.
  2. To be capable of holding.
  3. To have as component parts; include or comprise.
  4. To hold or keep within limits; restrain.
  5. To halt the spread or development of.
  6. To check the expansion or influence of a hostile power or ideology by containment.
