Disorder: 9 Uneven Angles by French artist Bernar Venet was commissioned by New York City’s Department of Transportation Art Program, in collaboration with the Paul Kasmin Gallery, and the Union Square Partnership. As the press description describes, the “structure plays off of the verticality of the surrounding buildings in the Union Square area, and is situated at an intersection where high volumes of pedestrian and vehicular traffic all cross at different angles.” The twenty-five foot tall installation, Disorder: 9 Uneven Angles is located on Broadway and 17th Street and will be on view through June 22nd, 2016.
