The New York City Ballet commissioned this AMAZING four-story high, 2,500 box installation piece from FAILE the Brooklyn-based artistic collaboration between Patrick McNeil and Patrick Miller. The pallets and pieces of the installation are wood and very much part of an interactive show. Audience members for the Feb 1st and May 29th shows will receive a limited-edition work made specifically for this event.
I love FAILE’S statement on the project, “If they’re the ballet then we’re the New York City. It’s a bit of mixing the grime with the glamour…wrestling with the beauty & the beast. It’s taking these two elements and pushing them together.”
Special gallery hours to see the work are February 10-17th.
