For over twenty years P.S.1 has been a defining force in New York's cultural life. It combines a world-class exhibition program, a prestigious National and International Artist Studio Program, and a broad spectrum of education and public programs that serve many audiences. Founded in 1971, P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center is one of the largest and oldest arts organizations in the United States solely devoted to contemporary art. Recognized as a defining force of the alternative space movement, P.S.1 stands out from other major arts institutions in its cutting edge approach to exhibitions and direct involvement with artists. In particular, P.S. 1 has long been committed to artists creating site-specific works.  On view year-round throughout the building are site-specific installations in spaces not usually considered exhibition spaces such as the basement, bathrooms, stairwells or even underneath floorboards!

PS1's affiliation with the Museum of Modern Art further strengthens the already impressive schedule of ongoing exhibitions. Check out the PS 1 website for details.

Rirkrit Tiravanija: A LOT OF PEOPLE

From the start of his practice, a critical material for Rirkrit Tiravanija (Thai, b. 1961) has been the presence of “a lot of people”—a purposefully broad and expansive term that stands as an open invitation to everyone and anyone, present and future. His largest exhibition to date, Rirkrit Tiravani... [ + ]ja: A LOT OF PEOPLE traces four decades of the artist’s career and features over 100 works, from early experimentations with installation and film, to works on paper, photographs, ephemera, sculptures, and newly produced “demonstrations” of key participatory pieces. The exhibition includes rarely seen early works that address his experiences as an immigrant with a palpable sense of “otherness” in a Western-centric art world, alongside more recent series that tackle global politics and the quotidian news cycle. Several interactive works will also be on view, along with restagings of five participatory works scheduled at set intervals throughout the run of the exhibition. These happenings will be staged anew in site-specific enactments at MoMA PS1—an experiment in presenting and reconsidering his situational performances. By surveying his practice as a sculptor, filmmaker, traveler, collaborator, and mentor, A LOT OF PEOPLE provides an overview of the striking complexity of Tiravanija’s efforts to “bring people in” to encounter each other and “make less things, but more useful relationships.”
