Our team is working non-stop to install Orly Genger’s YOU on the quiet green at Brown University. Below the work in progress. We’ve also got a live feed of the installation running, which you can check out here.
Orly Genger uses recycled lobster rope to construct her monumentally scaled sculptural interventions in public places. For the next two weeks she will be building YOU, a new site-specific installation on Brown University’s campus. To see Genger and her team in action stop by the quite green during daylight hours November 3-12. Or, check back in here, on Re:Bell, where we will be posting frequent updates.
On November 21st Genger will be back on campus to talk about the work and celebrate its completion (Conversation at 5:30 in List Art Auditorium; reception at 6:30 on the quiet green).
YOU will be on view November 2014-Summer 2015.

The world-renowned sculptor, Martin Puryear, came to campus yesterday to help site the Slavery Memorial that he has designed for Brown University. The Bell Gallery’s preparatory team built a full-scale model of the memorial, which was used to determine where the final version will be placed. The memorial will be made of ductile cast iron and granite, and it will live on the front green (also known as the quiet green) next to Hope College. The dedication is planned for next fall. Below are some images of the artist at work.
