An Epic Installation in Wade Thompson Drill Hall
Curated by Tom Eccles.
Park Avenue Armory launches its first commissioned art installation with anthropodino, a large-scale, interactive work by world-renowned artist, Ernesto Neto. Using hundreds of yards of translucent material, Neto suspends a gigantic canopy from the drill hall’s latticework truss, spanning 120 feet wide and 180 feet long. Magnificent, aromatic “fabric stalactites” descend 60 feet to embrace a vast labyrinth of passageways and rooms.

Saturday through Monday: 12pm – 6pm
Memorial Day: 12pm – 6pm
18 and under: FREE
Park Avenue Armory Members: FREE

anthropodino reminded me of a few things:
1) an ohmu from nausicaa and the valley of the wind
2) being inside a jellyfish
3) just go see it before it closes!
