A new work of Berlin-based artist Katharina Grosse. psychylustro transforms one of Philadelphia’s major transportation thoroughfares with a series of seven bright, bold installations along the city’s rail gateway between 30th Street and North Philadelphia stations. The work unfolds in a series of seven passages – from vast, dramatic warehouse walls to small buildings and stretches of green spaces — meant to be framed through the windows of the moving train, creating a real-time landscape painting that explores shifting scale, perspective and the passage of time. Magic train world.

Warp x Tate was held last December at London’s major museum.

With »Apparatus«, American artist Roxy Paine introduces a new chapter in his work, a series of large scale dioramas. Inspired by spaces and environments designed to be activated via human interaction, a fast-food restaurant and a control room, the dioramas present spaces and objects which are hand carved from birch and maple wood and formed from steel, encased and frozen in time, void of human presence, making their inherent function obsolete. Apparatus was Paine’s first solo exhibition in Chicago at Kavi Gupta Gallery.
