Mr. Tritt’s transdisciplinary work is the largest free-standing structure of its kind, combining painting, architecture, and sculpture. Additional components, curated by project producer, Jodi Kaplan, include dance, music, and spoken word performances. Special events in conjunction with the installation include an Opening Celebration, March 8, timed to correspond with the Armory Show, and a Closing Celebration, March 16.
