30º at UNTITLED

Featured in SiTE:LAB’s booth at the Untitled Art Fair in Miami Beach, 30º emerged from the sand, extended through the floor and reached above the walls of the booth. With the help of the students from Kendall College of Art and Design, the painted wood structure, secured with wire cables, measured 25 x 15 x 15 feet in total.

Construction of the Multicolored Grid

With the arrival of Paul Amenta’s students from Kendall College of Art and Design, we were able to work quickly to install the Multicolored Grid.

We did this by splitting into two teams, one led by Paul and the other by me. We rotated between tasks, so every student got to do each aspect of the installation process.

The night before the opening, I finished up the last phase of the installation – cutting into the grid – while the team touched up the colors. Each person had one color.

Paul Amenta and the Kendall College of Art and Design Students

I am absolutely thrilled that my longtime friend, supporter, and curator, Paul Amenta has joined me in Beijing with a group of students from Kendall College of Art and Design. Paul has created a curriculum at KCAD that discusses site-specific installations. Through this course, the students will have the hands-on experience of working on Multicolored Grid as well as my piece at the UNTITLED Fair in Miami in December (more on that later).

The students got to work installing the multicolored metal studs in the space. Much like Untitled (Basin and Range), we map out the grids with a template before setting them in place. The students pictured below are Lydia Boda, Erin Dumond, Jacob Hanson, Jacob Kapusta and Nathan McCallum. Thanks to all of you and to Paul for all of your assistance!
