to Let Manhattan?

An article in this weekend's NY Times reports that commercial vacancies in NYC will reach 10% by the middle of next year. Imagine them filled with installation art.

"Colonial Left" uninstalled today

111B The Commons has been rented (yay!).
Which means "Colonial Left" was taken down today (boo!).

This is the nature of the to Let program. We hope that spaces will become occupied and are glad to have the opportunity to show work in the mean time. Get a look at the current installations because you never know when they'll be gone.

Thanks to Michelle for creating a thoughtful piece - mimicking an antiques shop, a museum display and many a tacky '70's living room at the height of bicentennial mania - and questioning our relationship with colonialism. With Colonial Barbie!

Keep an eye out for new installations in empty spaces.

to Let opening

Thanks to everyone that came out for the to Let opening yesterday! Please let us know what you think of the installations by commenting on the posts. Or ask an artist a question, etc.

Here are some photos from last night. Many thanks to two of our fantastic interns, Mollie Miller and Elaine Oh, who gave the walking tours.

Lindsey Glover had open studio hours at The Flower Shop, the evolving phenomena behind her installation, A Plastic Garden. Last night had an impromptu music performance.

Natalie Campbell gave a talk on the taxonomy of clouds in relation to her installation, The Weather Metabulator.
