Pictures of you
Sometimes the most fun art is the work you can interact with. We opened our Hudson (Show)Room exhibition, Swap Meet: Artpace and The Dikeou Collection, last night, and this morning encountered a flood of our friends’ images on Facebook, many of which included people climbing and dancing on Wade Guyton’s very inviting installation, The Room Moved, the Way Blocked (Stage 1) (1998), which is located on our rooftop and is supposed to be climbed and danced on. Even more ubiquitous are images of any and everyone posing with Momoyo Torimitsu’s giant pink inflatable bunnies.
