RUSS: Residual Urban Site Strategies
Tuesday December 9, 1997 – Saturday January 17, 1998
Gordon Kipping’s solo exhibition RUSS (Residual Urban Site Strategies) presented a prototypical building conceived for narrow sites on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Through the application of electronic screens to the panelized interior surfaces of this prototypical building, the potentially uncomfortable narrow spaces were transformed into visually stimulating environments. Conveniently, the proportions of Storefront closely resembled the proportions of the proposed residential unit, allowing the gallery space to be transformed into a full-scale mock-up for the duration
of the exhibition.
