"Between Being Born and Dying" at Lever House

Currently on display in the Art Collection at Lever House is an exhibition of American collage artist Barbara Kruger's text-based works. The entire ground floor lobby of Aby Rosen's midtown office building is wrapped with black and white vinyl text. Quotes that Kruger appropriates in this installation include:
"The meaning of life is that it stops." -Kafka
"The globe shrinks for those that own it." -Humi K. Bhabha
And our personal favorite...
"If it laughs, choke it. If it cries, drown it. If it sighs, shame it. If it loves, buy it. If it moves fuck it."
