Analogue Sites

Thu, Mar 21    6:30pm

Artist and preservation architect Jorge Otero-Pailos (GSAPP Professor Director, M.S. and PhD Historic Preservation Program) presents Analogue Sites, a public sculpture exhibition on Manhattan’s Park Avenue between March and October, 2024. Wrought from the fence that protected the former U.S. Embassy in Oslo — a Saarinen-designed landmark — the sculptures raise awareness about the role of American modern art and architecture in cultural diplomacy and advocate for the preservation of these mid-century embassies.

Relocated to New York, the sculptures will be in dialogue with other mid-century icons and international institutions, bringing to light the role of Park Avenue as an art and architectural laboratory of inter-cultural exchange. A related and limited-edition artist’s book of prints, Treaties on De-Fences, further intertwines the curves of the sculptures with the lines of diplomatic treaties from which the sculptures derive their names. Response by visual artist and Chair of the School of the Arts Visual Arts Program, Matthew Buckingham.

This event is free and open to the public. Register here.

Analogue Sites exhibition by Jorge Otero-Pailos is presented by the Sculpture Committee for the Fund for Park Avenue and NYC Parks. It is a sponsored project of the New York Foundation for the Arts with funding provided by the Onera Foundation, the Queen Sofia Spanish Institute, the AECID, the New York State Council for the Arts, and individual donors.
