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.

This incredible art space hidden in plain view

On the ground floor of the WIOX 91.3 FM, a community radio station that is entirely supported and run by local talent. We are forever thankful to the man who, seeing us peering through the windows, opened up the doors and gave us a tour of his work space & art, took us upstairs to the radio floor, and allowed us to take photos.

You can listen to WIOX 91.3 FM here.

No end to art

Just the end of our walk in one of the largest art museums of contemporary art we’d seen so far, one that leaves breathing space for the art to expand and feel totally at home, as if it were borne to be there.

François Morellet, “No End Neon,” 1990/2017

Barriers

Top:
Installation by Dan Flavin (untitled, 1970), a work that was conceived as an edition of three, but only two were produced. The other one is installed in Donald Judd Foundation, 101 Spring Street Space, in New York City, the first building Judd owned, where he worked and lived with his family. It was created specifically to illuminate the family’s bedroom, at a time that the two artists and friends were working so closely together that, for a while, they had become Flavin & Judd.

The gorgeous windows behind Flavin’s installation are part of Robert Irwin’s design for Dia: Beacon, Beacon Project (1999–2003) that conceived the museum as a work of art itself.

Bottom:
Just barriers, artfully stacked.
