Swoon "Anthropocene Extinction" @ Boston ICAJuxtapoz // Wednesday, 31 Aug 2011
Following another busy summer, where Swoon had one of the premier installations at MOCA's Art In the Streets and her ongoing project in New Orleans, the Brooklyn-based artist opens a new museum installation at the Boston ICA, Anthropocene Extinction, this Saturday, September 3.
As the ICA writes, "For the ICA’s fifth installation of the Sandra and Gerald Fineberg Art Wall, Swoon's installation will extend from the elevator atrium to the lobby, soaring 40 feet up to the ceiling—the largest installation to occupy the Fineberg Art Wall. The work, titled Anthropocene Extinction, is composed of streams of intricately cut paper which connect key sculptural elements within the installation, including a 400-pound, suspended bamboo sculpture. The exhibition is accompanied by an ICA-produced video featuring installation footage and an interview with the artist."
We still love our February 2007 cover with Swoon...
