Roger Clark talks with curator and Reliquary manager Sarah Celentano and Reliquary founder Dave Herman about our latest exhibition, Life of an American Ruin: Philip Johnson’s New York State Pavilion!
The National Trust for Historic Preservation has covered our exhibition on the New York State Pavilion, Life of an American Ruin!
From the article:
“…the exhibit asks an important question about balancing reinvention with restoration:
‘Strolling through the exhibition, visitors will get the opportunity to see the structure during its heyday at the World’s Fair, as well as in its present, ruined state. While vintage photos do exist online, the exhibition specifically asks viewers to consider the importance of ruins in the modern age, and whether or not an architectural icon should be reinvented to fit in the current cultural landscape.'”
“In a city where large, iconic museums and galleries dominate the cultural landscape, The City Reliquary stands proudly as an alternative site of interest, and one with an arguably richer and more impactful story to tell.”
