Project for Empty Space (PES) is holding the opening for their fall project tomorrow evening from 6-8pm. PES is a non-profit organization founded in September 2010 that is “dedicated to bringing contemporary art out of its traditional ‘high-brow’ places and into abandoned and unusual urban spaces.” They are popping up in the city-owned lot at 181 Stanton Street. Their hope is “to foster community building and education through the development of interactive public art.”
The featured installation is a large scale, interactive piece by New York artist Alex Callender. And the intriguing focus is on deer — “as they travel through a corridor in the Lower East Side in search of habitat.” If you can’t make the opening, we’re told the installation will be in place for several months.
