Drag Queens and Chalices: The Art of Thomas Lanigan-Schmidt

In the video below, take a tour of multimedia artist Thomas Lanigan-Schmidt’s studio. His mixed-media constructions, collages, and installations—marked by a trashy opulence concocted from household items and dollar stores—are the subject of the exhibition Thomas Lanigan-Schmidt: Tender Love Among the Junk, on view at MoMA PS1 through April 1, 2013.

Our project for the MoMA PS1 Young Architects Program is about redefining the boundaries of architecture. It is a proactive participant in the city’s ecology thanks to a skin that collects NO2 from the air—to the equivalent of taking 260 cars off of the road.

From The Records of MoMA PS1: Illuminating Ephemera

It was as if I had walked into the middle of a professional cliché: crouched in the musty attic of MoMA PS1, I sifted through beaten-up boxes of institutional flotsam. I was attempting to survey the remaining materials to be included in The Records of MoMA PS1, which will open to the public at the end of 2012.

Checking in on Holding Pattern

We thought it might be a good time to check in on Holding Pattern, our project for the 2011 Young Architects Program. Holding Pattern was deinstalled from the MoMA PS1 courtyard four months ago, but the deinstallation didn’t mark the end of the project—just the start of its second phase.

Walking down Washington Avenue in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights, I frequently pass a handsome brick building with the telltale green lanterns of a former police precinct headquarters.

Clifford Owens needed help. Since May he has been in residence at MoMA PS1 where has been preparing for his fall exhibition Anthology. Owens has been interpreting and carrying out performance scores written by African-American artists. While most scores are written instructions for actions, Saya Woolfalk’s contribution is a graphical score that resembles a drawing complete with costumed characters and stick figures interacting with one another.
