Barbara Kruger downtown new york

To build excitement for the new downtown location of the Whitney, the museum commissioned three artists, Guyton/Walker, Tauba Auerbach and Barbara Kruger, to contribute to an ongoing public art project on the site of the future building. The artists stays true to their aesthetics but must use printed vinyl as the medium to mold and cover the fences and surrounding area on the corners of Gansevoort and Washington St. The current Barbara Kruger installation of iconic black and white word images debuted over the weekend and is visible at both ground level and from the High Line, New York.
