thru Jan 6: “the event of a thread” Ann HamiltonPark Avenue Armory, 643 Park Ave., NYC (bt 66th & 67th)Tickets $12 General, $10 Students/Seniors, Free for Kids“At its core, the installation features two fields of suspended swings connected via ropes and pulleys to each other and to a massive white curtain that bisects the 55,000-square-foot Wade Thompson Drill Hall. Each swing has its counterpart on the other side and it is the visitor’s momentum on the swing that activates a rolling undulation of the curtain. The resultant movement brought on by one swing is enhanced when another visitor engages the corresponding swing on the opposite side. The movement of the curtain alone is mesmerizing and the beauty is that the curtain remains in a continual state of flux set in motion by the interaction of visitors.” - Hyperallergicphoto: James Ewin
