Like their previous collaborations, Piazza Gratissima reinforces their desire to connect art to the live activities of both making and engagement.

• Jamaica Flux is a large-scale exhibition of research-driven, site-specific art installed in everyday locations along Jamaica Avenue. The nineteen commissioned artists and groups include: hannes bend, Adam Brent, Aurora De Armendi, Ayana Evans, Nicholas Fraser, Samantha Holmes, Anna Lise Jensen, Sue Jeong Ka, Kakyoung Lee, Rejin Leys, Shervone Neckles, Jeffrey Allen Price, Dominique Sindayiganza, Stan Squirewell, Thiago Szmrecsanyi, Ed Woodham, and three artist collectives; Ellie Irons and Dan Phiffer, John H.

2015 Artscape (Anchor Project), BroLab, Misty Mountain Royals, Baltimore, MD
• BroLab was commissioned to create a temporary public installation as part of Artscape 2015 in Balitmore, MD. Placed within a 150-foot span of Mount Royal Avenue median Misty Mountain Royals consisted of several large-scale forms customized to the terrain of Mount Royal’s landscape. Each form was built using a triangular system of aluminum poles, key clamps, and brightly colored vinyl mesh accompanied by adjacent plumes of high-pressure mist. The general public was encouraged to interact with the mist and sit atop the concrete slabs upon which the larger forms are anchored. A dramatic array of color, form, and movement, Misty Mountain Royals remixes the notion of the everyday crossing as both a place of destination and passage - a social nexus to cool off audiences in the midst of summertime.

2013 Bronx Museum, Quarter Horse, (BronxLab Lobby Design and Installation) Bronx, NY
• Conceived as a test site for contemporary culture, BRONX LAB encourages active participation and dialogue about topics of importance to the Bronx community. A collaborative effort of curators and educators, BRONX LAB is structured to promote digital learning and the dissemination of new media work. For its inaugural installation BRONX LAB commissioned a site-specific environment by the artist collective BroLab. A hybrid of design and sculptural work, Quarter Horse features a set of modular tables and media stations that can be arranged in multiple configurations. Each unit is a combination of minimal sculptural forms, all edged with a range of bright surface colors. Developed to complement a variety of BRONX LAB events and programming, Quarter Horse is a platform for cultural education and social engagement. The BRONX LAB interactive hub is made possible by a generous grant from Deutsche Bank.
