A Prelude to The Shed
In approximately one year New York’s Hudson Yards is going to witness a major influx of culture with the much-anticipated opening of The Shed, a cutting-edge, multi-disciplinary arts center set to launch in the Spring of 2019. To honor this momentous occasion, from May 1 to 13, The Shed will present a carefully structured pre-opening set of programs one block from their future permanent home in a free, two-week event dubbed, A Prelude to The Shed.
Akin to the transformable nature of The Shed’s future home designed by Liz Diller and David Rockwell, the temporary space in which Prelude will live is an equally flexible structure by architect Kunlé Adeyemi of NLÉ Works. Each day of programming will include site-specific dance performances by legendary artist Tino Sehgal and choreographer William Forsythe, a ‘stroll though the fun palace’, honoring architect Cedric Price’s unrealized project from 1961, evening conversations by leaders in culture and the arts, as well as live solo concerts by ABRA, Acra and Azealia Banks. This momentous occasion is not to be missed. Visit the link provided to view further information on programming and a chance to reserve your free tickets!
