AI WEIWEI ACCORDING TO WHAT?
INTERNATIONAL CENTER OF PHOTOGRAPHY
In April, RKF announced the sale of an 11,000-square-foot space at 250 Bowery to ICP, who confirmed the new space will be ready for a Fall 2015 move-in. The Bowery has seen a renaissance in the last decade with a boom of new luxury apartments, restaurants, boutiques and galleries. “ICP is a leader in the contemporary art world,” said Atria Properties’ Jane McVerry, who represented ICP in the transaction. “When it came time to look for a new location for the
historic and revered organization, the Bowery— with its eclectic mix of galleries, the NewMuseum and the Bowery Hotel—was an obvious choice.” Duggal is the preferred print and graphics provider for ICP, partnering in everything from their Lecture Series and Infinity Awards gala to the Picture Windows project. With visual consultant Hillary Altman leading the way, we are proud of our recent work in establishing the visual presence of the new museum.
The creative genius of controversial Chinese artist Ai WeiWei spans sculpting, photography, filmmaking, architecture and activism. His work explores hot- button issues in culture, history, politics and the significance of expression. Ai WeiWei: According to What? at the historic Brooklyn Museum took viewers through the complex mind of the world’s most provocative artists. The exhibition features gripping imagery accompanied by a heart-wrenching installation of salvaged rubble and items from the devastating 2008 Sichuan earthquake.
Duggal is proud of both our relationship with the Brooklyn Museum and being entrusted by them to be a part of this riveting exhibition. Marina Stark and Faye Iwata consulted with museum curators to produce more than 6,000 square feet of gallery-quality wallpaper displaying Ai WeiWei’s artwork, including the two-room earthquake installation and a complete transformation of museum staircases into visual galleries.
