Understanding Public Art Fund Untapped Cities AFineLyne“Understanding” by Martin Creed being installed at Pier 6 of Brooklyn Bridge Park

Martin Creed has taken a page from vintage Times Square marquees and roadside signs in his new installation, UNDERSTANDING at Brooklyn Bridge Park. His chosen word is spelled out in ten-foot tall by fifty-foot wide letters located on a steel I-beam overlooking lower Manhattan and Pier 6. UNDERSTANDING rotates 360 degrees at varying speeds, shifting our perspective, and will be on view from May 4 through October 23, 2016.

Martin Creed will have an additional installation in New York entitled The Back Door at the Park Avenue Armory in June.
