ABC No Rio, historic lower east side community art center, is to be demolished to be replaced by a very elegant new building. Christy Rupp and I collaborated on an installation for the last show in the space. We were both involved in No Rio in the 80’s; the show we were in featured artists who have been involved in No Rio throughout its 30 year history.
Our piece was a two eyed diorama. Christy’s work featured a beating heart floating against a forested backdrop, mine had elements of the circulatory system floating in front of a bleaker forest scene. Here’s a few pictures.
