Congratulations to Sarah Sze, AFT artist for the new 96th Street/2nd Avenue Subway station, who will represent the US at the 2013 Venice Biennale! Pictured above is a rendering of the 96th Street/2nd Avenue Subway station’s installation by Sarah.
Details from an Art Info preview of the new station:

Sze’s design for the 96th Street stop consists of a series of drawings reproduced directly onto wall tiles through a digital printing process. The three entrances to the station each have a different palette — lavender, light blue, and deep blue — bursting with hundreds of different designs aimed to amuse. (Think oversize plants, floating ladders, and a lone office chair.) “Even if you get off at that stop every day for a year, you’ll still find something new,” said [MTA Arts for Transit and Urban Design’s Lester] Burg.

If you’ve been to the High Line in the last year, you’ve most likely seen Sarah’s public art piece, Still Life With Landscape (Model for a Habitat) on view until June 2012. Sze’s latest exhibition Infinite Line is on view at the Asia Society and closes this Sunday, March 25th. See it while you can!

    This brought tears to my eyes. I grew up a block from where this will be built. My heart yearns for my city.
