Rockaway!, by Katharina Grosse and MoMA PS1


Artist Katharina Grosse has transformed an old aquatics building in New York – Fort Tilden – into a brightly coloured, spray paint covered installation.

The Rockaway! installation is designed to be the last celebration of the building, which was declared structurally unsound after Hurricane Sandy in 2012, and is set to be demolished later this year.

Thomas Secunda, co-founder of Bloomberg LP and chair of the Jamaica Bay-Rockaway Parks Conservancy, says: “Katharina captures the bold, expansive and exhilarating colors of the Rockaway sunset, which we all treasure as part of our collective experience of the Jamaica Bay-Rockaway Parks.”
