Sonnabend & Kenny Schachter/ROVE announce an exciting new exhibition opening on November 1st, 2008, a two-venue New York show of Zaha Hadid's new installations, at Sonnabend and 169 10th Avenue (At 21st Street), organized by Kenny Schachter/Rove.Though these projects begin as architectural commissions, the works on view inform an international discourse on processes, technologies of manufacture, and on form itself. They develop spatial representations that redefine the notion of physical space by warping, pulling and pushing the boundaries of the galleries until we are left with architectonic interpretations that create new and unfamiliar interior landscapes.The show reflects Hadid's vision of a new twenty-first century urbanism; part of a revolutionary body of works based on organic systems of organization. Each piece explores a new living environment using a formal language of fluidity. They seamlessly integrate art, design and architecture into our lives.These pieces provide a basis to live with architecture in ways previously impossible. Each installation offers elements of Hadid's 30 year explorations into an architecture of fluidity at all scales. This show is not solely art, design or architecture, but rather a hybrid quoting from all three.In November 2008. there will be a unique and unprecedented chance to see Mobile Art: Chanel, alongside two major galleries exhibiting ambitious new, large-scale sculptural installations, the likes of which New York has never seen before.
