Now Reading: ‘8 Till Late’ Art Installation at The Standard [New York]
Written 11 months ago by
Three years after Cornershop, her sell-out art installation in London, critically acclaimed British artist Lucy Sparrow is pleased to present her US debut at The Standard, High Line in New York.
Open to the public from June 5th – June 30thh, 8 Till Late will transform a 1200-square-foot space off The Standard’s Biergarten on Little West 12th Street into a fully stocked felt convenience store, unleashing the playful, parallel universe of one of the UK’s most exciting artists on New York City’s Meatpacking District.
8 Till Late is intended to make a comment on the demise of the neighborhood corner store, as main streets around the world become homogenized replicas, and celebrate the sense of community inherent in the local independent store. The project is one of many public art exhibits that have been presented by The Standard, High Line, including installations by KAWS, Parla, André Saraiva and Kenny Scharf.
