The Corner Room on the 1st Floor

The Art and Picture Collections at Mid-Manhattan Library present Shifting Structures: Stacks a site specific installation by artist Jane South. This exhibition is part of South's Shifting Structures series, an ongoing work where sculptural components are re-configured according to the specifics of site. At once an ever-mutating sculptural drawing and a reflection of our shifting architectural environment, the work is constructed on-site during the month of August and September, utilizing the architectural peculiarities of NYPL’s Mid-Manhattan Library space and incorporating the idea of library stacks as a structural principle. The artist is also using pulped (discarded / damaged) library books to make some of the elements. The ordering of the piece happens spontaneously and the public is able to see the work evolve during its construction.

The artist continues to work on the installation inside The Corner Room on: August 7, 8, 9, 10, 13, 14, 15, 16, 18, 22, 23 and September 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 11. 

The first event of the new series What Inspires Artists free and open to public is held on Tuesday October 2 at 6:30 p.m insider The Corner Room.

Writer Jeffrey Kastner joins South for An Artist Dialogue, free and open to public, on Saturday December 15 at 3:00 p.m. inside The Corner Room.
