Two large-format prints of David Salle paintings are going up on display on a historic building designed by the architecture firm McKim, Mead & White being redeveloped in the NoMad neighborhood of Manhattan. Swamp Music, which will overlook Fifth Avenue, measures 47 by 70 feet, and Solar System, around the corner to loom over 28th Street, is 44 by 66 feet. Taking up their home this weekend, both are works by the New York painter from 2013.
The limestone and terra cotta edifice is being restored in advance of the opening of a hotel in a conjoined tower by Flâneur Hospitality. Art advisor Elizabeth Margulies joined the company as a consultant for a project to repurpose scrims installed for construction purposes, and she will continue to organize art programming for the hotel slated to open in fall of next year.
In a statement Margulies said, “David’s work encourages reflection, individual contemplation, and the diversity of lived experiences. Our goal for the project is to get people to slow down, look up, and take in a brief moment of serendipity and discovery amidst the bustle of Fifth Avenue. This activation is also indicative of the unconventional engagement with art that you can expect to find in the hotel.”
