MoMA PS1’s Spectacular New Canopy Is Literally a Coolest Place to Hang This Summer, Day or Night

On Friday, a Guardian done a rather clever explain that art galleries, not nightclubs, are a new prohibited spots for anyone looking to rave. (Hmm.) Hyperbole aside, they focused in partial on a rough parties that take place all summer prolonged during MoMA PS1 as partial of a Warm Up series, that has summoned buzzy acts like Virgil Abloh, Hot Chip, Skepta, and SOPHIE to take a theatre in a courtyard, all a approach in Long Island City.

And while a “best place to rave” is a think claim, there’s no doubt that PS1’s yard is now one of a coolest places to hang this summer—literally, as of this week.

Lumen, after all, isn’t your typical canopy: It’s done out of over a million yards of recycled, photo-luminescent textiles able of collecting solar energy, as good as producing light. A smattering of stools, that have been woven by robots, have also been commissioned to concede for a some-more gentle investigation of this pleasant tech. Some sections of a canopy bend down in like a unconventional chronicle of Pipilotti Rist’s underwear chandelier during a New Museum.
