PS160 is an immersive architectural installation that will take place inside The Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural Center. Created by artist Gabrielle Mertz and commissioned by Artists Alliance, the project utilizes a choreographed series of light and sound projections located throughout the Clemente building to construct a performative experience of the architecture. The installation references structural and design elements of the Dutch Neo-Gothic landmark, as well as the building’s history within the Lower East Side neighborhood, original function as a school, and later use by artists and community members. The event also celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the New York City Landmarks Preservation Law, which helped to catalyze the architectural preservation movement in the United States.

Drawing on her background as a professional choreographer, the artist constructs a site-specific, immersive experience that places the architecture of the building at center stage and in the role of performer. Audiences will be able to explore the building’s performance at will using a map provided by the artist. PS160 refers to the building’s former life as Public School 160, the name conferred by the New York City Board of Education’s Committee on Buildings upon construction in 1897.

Cuchifritos Gallery + Project Space is thrilled to present Nom Nom Ohm: When Life Gives You Lemons, Make Chandeliers, an installation by Jessica Segall that features two chandelier light fixtures powered by the unlikely source of produce. The antique chandeliers are illuminated using products bought from Essex Street Market vendor Viva Fruit and Vegetables. The pair of opulent chandeliers were rewired to use the unidirectional flow of electrical charge, or DC power, to collect all of their energy from the humble source of market-bought fruit.

"Formerly we used to represent things visible on earth, things we either liked to look at or would have liked to see. Today we reveal the reality that is behind visible things, thus expressing the belief that the visible world is merely an isolated case in relation to the universe and that there are many more other, latent realities. Things appear to assume a broader and more diversified meaning, often seemingly contradicting the rational experience of yesterday…" – Paul Klee, Creative Confession (1920)
