Welcome Spring: Leandro Erlich's Swimming Pool at P.S.1
While not quite warm enough for most to want to brave the roof-deck pool at Soho House that doesn't mean you can't welcome spring with a quick dip. Through October 9th P.S.1 brings us artist Leandro Erlich's Swimming Pool. First shown at the 2001 Venice Biennale the work creates the illusion of a pool while allowing those who wish to experience the work from within to remain warm and dry. Erlich, know for his illusionary installations, was also among the artists to participate in Chanel's Mobile Art, which hit New York back in October.
