Using a derelict industrial building in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, an international group of artists reconstitute the Olafur Eliasson survey on their own terms.
‘It’s About Time, Man,’ responds to the unquestioned acclaim for Eliasson’s faux-natural creations, and inaugurates the future home for Repetti. 12 artists will each address a different Eliasson work, using the squalid state of this former carriage house as inspiration. The building will undergo major renovation in the fall, and become the new home for Repetti in late ‘09.
Organized by William McMillin and Sam Farnsworth, this group of established and emerging artists has strong ties to the Greenpoint area, though also included are several foreign-based artists.
