Gigantic New York Public Art Installation Opens

The New York art work has been abuzz lately about a gigantic installation that's scheduled to open later this week. And no, in case you're wondering, I'm not talking about those gates things.

The Tim Hawkinson show, opening at the Whitney this Friday, includes his monumental Überorgan--a work so large that the Whitney couldn't display it in house. Instead, the work has taken over the public atrium at 590 Madison Ave. (between 56th and 57th Streets). Although the show isn't officially open yet, Überorgan (below) is already installed and functioning.

Designed for an exhibition at MASS MoCA in 2000, the piece has been well modified to take advantage of its current space. The work is accessible between 8:00 AM and 10:00 PM with daily soundings scheduled for 9:00 AM, 12:30 PM, 3:00 PM, 5:00 PM, and 6:00 PM.

(Update: The performance schedule has been increased. For the time being, Überorgan will play every hour on the hour and at 12:30 PM. This schedule, though, may be adjusted again at a future point during the run.)
