Cool Hunting Video Presents: The Lever House Art Collection

A public art institution, NYC's Lever House unveils its latest installation: A collection of artfully distorted statues by Richard Dupont

by Cool Hunting Video in Culture on 08 April 2008

For nearly a decade the Lever House in New York City has been home to some of the most daring public exhibits of contemporary art. In this video curator Richard Marshall gives some background on the architectural landmark and explains the ins-and-outs of putting together the biannual commissions that have included the likes of Barnaby Furnace, Sarah Morris and Damien Hirst. In addition to past shows, we also get a close look at Richard Dupont's installation of larger-than-life distorted figures, the making of which we documented in our video profiling the artist.
