Public School 1

March 26, 2009

Here are a few pics from a recent visit to PS1. The contemporary art center was founded in 1971 as the Institute for Art and Urban Resources Inc., an organization devoted to organizing exhibitions in underutilized and abandoned spaces across New York City.

The space is amazing. Converted from an old public school, the building retains its institutional feel while the artwork – painted on the walls, embedded in the floor, placed in darkened rooms – makes striking use of the space.
