The Art and Picture Collections at Mid-Manhattan Library present Shifting Structures: Stacks, a site specific installation by artist Jane South. This exhibition is part of South’s Shifting Structures series, an ongoing work where sculptural components are re-configured according to the specifics of site. At once an ever-mutating sculptural drawing and a reflection of our shifting architectural environment, the work is constructed on-site during the month of August and September, utilizing the architectural peculiarities of NYPL’s Mid-Manhattan Library space and incorporating the idea of library stacks as a structural principle. The ordering of the piece happens spontaneously and the public is able to see the work evolve during its construction.

On December 15th, Jane South and writer Jeffrey Kastner will discuss the ideas behind her Shifting Structures series and its site determined construction for Art in the Corner Room exhibition series, followed by audience Q & A.
