Tight Spot

The world of David Byrne, squished beneath the Highline

The world of David Byrne, squished beneath the Highline

Yesterday afternoon I went to check out David Byrne’s latest installation, “Tight Spot,” at the Pace Gallery’s new lot beneath the Highline. Having seen preview photos of Byne’s “squished” planet Earth floating around the Internet, I assumed I’d be able to wander through Chelsea guided by the sight of a massive blue orb that would be my final destination. Alas, the work is not so immediately apparent, tucked away in a relatively small space that’s invisible to surrounding streets, and so I wandered aimlessly for twenty minutes. The take away: be ye not so stupid.
