No materials where harmed in the making of this installation. Massaged, cajoled, reconstituting - yes. The artists are using materials that either existed in the space or as post consumer waste. Sponsored by Build it Green a nonprofit organization that salvages building materials to be reused in both artistic and commercial projects, the Exquisite Salvage project is a collaborative installation in a derelict (read as : texturally rich!) storefront on the corner of East Broadway and Clinton St, NYC. Borrowing from the Surrealist concept of the exquisite corpse, each artist will work in the space for 3 weeks and consecutively add to the installation and reference the previous artist's work in some way. The show features the designer Stephen Burks and visual artists Amanda Browder, Tara de la Garza, Cate Giordano, Meridith Pingree and Stuart Keeler.
