Event description: Expanding on his playful, ongoing exploration of architecture, the Bronx-born conceptual artist Vito Acconci, in collaboration with a team of architects and media artists, has radically transformed the Bronx Museum North Wing Lobby through a series of interventions built with Corian. A smooth, hard material that is not quite translucent and not quite opaque, Corian© is used by the Acconci Studio as if it were a pliable soft fabric: cut open and slit into strips, pulled and stretched, pitted and gouged, rolled and curved, and braided and knotted, making it behave almost as if it were an organism. Through this series of operations, the slick material often associated with kitchen countertops is transformed into a lace-like surface on which images and shadows cast by the audience are projected.
