Tom Sachs "SPACE PROGRAM: MARS" @ Park Avenue Armory, NYC

May 15, 2012

Tom Sachs' newest exhibition at first glance might seem like a glorified space camp that someone is trying to call art, but understanding Sachs' style and mentality we realized that this is in an incredible exhibition not to be missed. Sachs' will be occupying the 55,000 square foot Wade Thompson Drill Hall creating an immersive installation that is reminiscent of the Apollo Program but will be focused around Mars. The installation is going to consist of methodically constructed sculptures and creations that are necessary for Sachs' four week mission to Mars. Sachs and his thirteen person studio team or "crew" will be demonstration all the aspects of the installation necessary for survival such as scientific exploration, and colonization in extraterrestrial environs: from food delivery systems and entertainment to agriculture and human waste disposal. Sachs' and his crew will even be "lifting off" to Mars several times during their residency at the iconic Park Avenue Armory space. Even Nike is getting behind this exhibition with the release of Sachs' own "NikeCraft: Mars Yard Shoe". For more information visit tomsachsmars.com –Brent DCVII Gentile
