Wooster on Spring

Judith Supine & Rekal
Today is the first day to view the Wooster Collective's inspired Wooster on Spring project. If you don't know what all the hubbub is about, read up on how the project came together, and then get your arse to the corner of Elizabeth and Spring and take in the 30,000 square feet of art before it's walled up and renovation begins on the building. If you can't make it to Soho during the next three days, all hope is not lost. According to the Wooster Collective you may get another chance to view the work in the year 2206.
As many of you know, there's a tradition in construction to leave a newspaper in a wall during the construction process to create a sort of time capsule. Most people who have renovated a home or building have great stories about finding things from decades, or even centuries before, in the walls of their buildings.

So after the Wooster on Spring exhibition, all of the interior walls of 11 Spring will be covered during the construction process. 11 Spring will become one of the most fascinating art time capsules in history. We love the fact that two hundred years from now, a brick might fall out to reveal an original piece created by Lady Pink, Shepard, Swoon and 35 other incredible artists.
