Hans Schabus, Lower East Side

Art Free
In his latest outing, the Austrian artist continues a site-specific/site-displacement work that began as a project for Simon Preston's booth at the 2013 Basel Miami Beach art fair. In it, the artist exhibited the gallery's LES storefront, which he had dismantled and transported to Florida, after replacing the missing glass door with one made of plywood. Here, he's installed successive iterations of the storefront, including the glass original, its plywood replacement and a similarly sized canvas, sporting a schematic rendering of the gallery's entrance.
