The Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group have revealed the collection of commissioned artwork that will soon be installed within the Hudson Yards mega-complex in Manhattan. The selected installations are envisioned as an enhancement of Midtown West’s existing “cultural corridor,” which includes the Whitney Museum.
A temporary steel tent situated on West 31st Street and 10th Avenue will imminently encompass a two-week free exhibition dubbed “Prelude To The Shed,” a preview for the kinds of programs that will soon be performed and showcased at The Shed. Designed by Kunle Adeyemi, with collaboration by artists including Tino Sehgal, William Forsythe, Reggie ‘Regg Roc’ Gray, ABRA, Arca, and Asad Raza, the space emphasizes visual dialogue and an integration of multiple practices within the arts.
As the largest planned development in the United States inches closer to completion, The Shed at Hudson Yards has announced the first group of commissions to be on display during the 2019 inaugural season. The Shed will be New York City’s first and only arts center dedicated to commissioning, producing, and presenting new work across the performing arts, visual arts, and pop culture areas. The mixed-use space is expected to be open to the public sometime in the spring of 2019.
