DSC_7774

This coming Saturday, December 27, I will install One Swimming Pool on the floor of the Teijin auditorium at the Stedelijk Museum. Visit the auditorium between 10 am – 6 pm and watch the pool as it appears. Note this is a one day event, and the final in a series of three such demonstrations. It is connected to the exhibition On the Move. The swimming pool will remain on view in the auditorium during the weekend. More info on the website of the Stedelijk.
