The acronym in this show's title stands for Holy Land USA, an abandoned 18-acre theme park in Waterbury, Connecticut, and the point of departure for the artist's installation. A video playing in the Swiss Institute's lobby takes viewers on a tour of the park's derelict, Bible-inspired attractions, while a series of 24 pyramids in the main gallery rise several feet from the floor, their sides chiseled with cryptic texting shorthand.
