Black Cube Artist Fellows, SANGREE, Announce a Site-Specific
Artwork to be Installed in Denver Inspired by Archaeological
Sites in Mexico!
This Black Cube pop up exhibition will open September 15 at the former RTD Market Street Station in downtown Denver.
Unclassified Site Museum is a site-specific, temporary art installation at a former RTD bus terminal in Denver. It will be open to the public from September 15 – December 31, 2016 and is located on the plaza of the vacant terminal on Market Street between 16th and 17th Streets in downtown Denver.
From a distance, the artwork appears to be a large, minimalist sculpture. As one gets closer, the subterranean windows reveal an archeological dig site, in which visible evidence of a pre-existing civilization can be seen. Architectural remnants of a multifamily residential compound imagined to be more than 1750 years old will be exposed. But, this window provides just a peek at what lies below. The entirety of the block-long archeological site is visible though the scale-model displayed within the Black Cube shipping container, which is also on-site.
Opening Reception: Thursday, September 15 from 6-10pm
Artist Talk: Tuesday, September 20 5pm start, 6pm talk
Exhibition Dates: September 15 – December 31, 2016
Shipping Container Hours through December: Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 12-4pm - weather permitting
Unclassified Site Museum is funded in part by the Bonfils-Stanton Foundation, cultivating arts and leaders for a vibrant community. Special thanks to Continuum Partners, for the site, coordination support, and hosting Black Cube. This project is made possible through the support of The 3D Printing Store, the Consulate General of Mexico in Denver, and Liberty Waste Management.
