Here's a sneak-peek at the incredible new installation, "Stray Light Grey
," by Jonah Freeman
and Justin Lowe
opening tonight at Marlborough Chelsea
(545 West 25th Street). The bi-coastal artists have constructed a mind-boggling series of connected rooms representing different social groups and historical time periods that wind through different levels of the now almost unrecognizable gallery. Rooms include an Art Deco museum, an Off Track Betting parlor, an art gallery, an archive/library of an eccentric aristocrat and a "retail environment" which includes a cake shop and a plastic surgery clinic. By the time you hit the end, you may have forgotten where you began. Expect big lines, as only 30 people will be admitted at a time. The show's install alone took almost six weeks and the art-duo are also busy finishing up another project opening in NYC later this year. Don't miss this show. It's the perfect launch to the Fall gallery season in NYC.
