Lever House

This event has ended.

For the exhibition, Woods has created a total of nine new patterns that will temporarily clad portions of the Lever House lobby and outdoor area, transforming the modernist landmark with a multitude of patterns and high intensity colors. Each pattern rendered is a set of print blocks that are used to create the panels that will cover sections of the Lever House and its grounds, including all forty of the structural steel columns, and eight Noguchi benches in the pedestrian area around the building's perimeter. Woods has also created two large floor pieces printed on aluminum and laid directly onto the Lever House lobby floor, a departure for the artist. Known for meshing art and design, history and humor, highbrow aesthetics with pop culture, Woods' site-specific projects use basic materials (wood, household paint) to create vividly different graphic surroundings.
