January 9: Open Studios and Presentations for Rising Currents: Projects for New York's Waterfront
Saturday, January 9, 2010
2:00 PM to 6:00 PM
This Saturday January 9 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., is the last opportunity for the public to visit the Rising Currents architect-in-residence studios at P.S.1. As part of P.S.1’s Saturday Sessions, the five teams will open their studios to the public and be available to discuss their work. A presentation by Barry Bergdoll, The Philip Johnson Chief Curator of Architecture and Design and the five team leaders will take place from 3 p.m.-4:30 p.m. in the Paintings Gallery.
Organized by The Museum of Modern Art in cooperation with P.S.1, Rising Currents includes an eight week residency for teams of architects and designers at P.S.1 this fall and winter, followed by an exhibition at MoMA next spring (opening March 24, 2010). The residency at P.S.1 is part of Free Space, a new project with artists and nonprofit arts institutions in which P.S.1 provides collaborative use of its gallery space for events, rehearsals, and other live presentations.
