In May, 2013, I co-organized Terry Smith’s “Capital Revisited.” The large-scale project was exhibited along 5 outdoor locations within my public art program with Fourth Arts Block. Jason Patrick Voegele, my partner in Republic Worldwide, led as Project Manager during the multi-site installation.
“Capital Revisited was commissioned by The Drawing Center in collaboration with the New Museum during IDEAS CITY 2013. The project was initiated by David Thorp. In 1995 I made a work at the British Museum called “Capital.” In New York 2013, for IDEAS CITY I revisited this work in a series of fragments focused on buildings in the East Village, just off the Bowery.
The project lasted twenty three days and began with an intensive period of drawing in my temporary studio in the basement of LaMaMa.
The work is a 54 ft x 38 ft drawing made in mixed media, broken and assembled in sections and relocated in five locations around the Bowery area of New York using wooden fences, outside walls and windows…
Capital Revisited was made possible through the help, support, expertise and good humour of Jason Patrick Voegele and Keith Schweitzer of Republic Worldwide.” – Terry Smith
