Located on the roof of Broadway 1602 Harlem Gallery’s c.1903 firehouse in East Harlem, is an installation entitled A Few Golden Moments by artist Tom Burr. In his six-panel screen, Burr attempts to create a social relationship between object and architecture. In 2013, A Few Golden Moments graced the sculpture garden at Frieze New York, reflecting the Manhattan cityscape. In El Barrio, the piece reinvent’s itself, reflecting the local architecture and surrounding sky-line, and on the reverse side of A Few Golden Moments, the viewer will become a part of the installation through reflective mirrors.
On the ground-floor gallery space, Broadway 1602 Harlem is currently exhibiting a group show entitled 121 Street, with twelve artists including Mr. Burr’s piece Oblong Box #2. A Few Golden Moments and the exhibit 121 Street will be on view for just a few more golden moments, through August 5. Broadway 1602 Harlem is located at 211 East 121st Street.
