It’s all just a love contest || The Shed

Launched as part of The Shed’s inaugural year program, Open Call was a large-​scale commissioning program for early-career NYC-based artists.

Poetry Slot Machine, 2019 || Saint Abdullah and Daniel Cupcic

”Poetry Slot Machine rewards participants with poems by 14h-century Persian poet Hafiz instead of the chance winning of money. Participants pull the handle to reveal a set of randomized passages from Hafiz’s poetry, traditionally read for guidance for the future.”

This was my reward.

Reich Richter Pärt

Reich Richter Pärt, an immersive live performance and exhibition in two parts—one conceived by composer Steve Reich and painter Gerhard Richter, the other by Richter and composer Arvo Pärt—explored the shared sensory language of visual art and music. The Richter Pärt partnership built on a concept developed by Alex Poots and Hans Ulrich Obrist for the Manchester International Festival and featured a live performance of Pärt’s captivating choral composition surrounded by Richter’s new work, including wallpaper and three jacquard tapestries.
