Art book publisher Phaidon has teamed up with The New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) to host a series of art shows in different cities around the globe. The first, which opens today, will be held in New York at Pier 36/ Basketball City (299 South Street).
The program at the show is inspired by the Phaidon book Art Cities of the Future. Non-profits from San Juan, Puerto Rico and Detroit, will present interactive project spaces showcasing their work to facilitate creative communities in the economically-challenged cities. Beta-Local from San Juan will feature work from sound artist Joel Rodriguez. The Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit’s contribution will explore the impact of musician Sun Ra and artist Mike Kelley on the city.
The show will be up through the weekend.
