Room 001.02 Projects: Pier 18, 1971

Room?s details

The decline of industrial activity in Lower Manhattan, caused by changes in the USA’s economic model, meant that gradually industrial spaces like warehouses and loading areas became empty, later being taken over by the artists who formed the revamped New York scene. The rise of new kinds of art creation called for new spaces, different from the traditional ones (studios, galleries, museums and so on), while new ephemeral art forms emerged like performances and happenings, turning to the camera and other methods to get themselves documented and captured for time.
