This exhibit, by artist SWOON, will feature a fleet of three hand crafted vessels that will navigate the Adriatic Sea, beginning in the Karst region of Slovenia and ending in Venice, Italy in May of 2009. Designed by the visual artist SWOON, the floating sculptures are descendants of the Swimming Cities of Switchback Sea (Hudson River, 2008) and the Miss Rockaway Armada (Mississippi River, 2006 and 2007).
The benefit will take place in New York City during Armory Show week, March 5th-8th, as part of Glowlab's exhibit space at Fountain, the alternative art exhibition known for presenting cutting-edge and independent art galleries. Fountain will be located at Pier 66 at 26th St in Hudson River Park. Participating artists include Swoon, Maya Hayuk, The London Police, Martha Cooper, Monica Canilao, Dennis McNett, Imminent Disaster, Eric White, Tod Seelie, Molly Crabapple, C. Damage, Elbow Toe and many more.
