About Assembly Required: A Wandering Sukkah
Assembly Required: A Wandering Sukkah is a fine art, interactive sukkah experience designed to visually and energetically interrupt New York’s urban rhythm. Created by artists Danielle Durchslag and Ryan Frank, the project is a mobile, artist-designed sukkah built in the Invisible Dog Art Center back garden, hoisted onto the bed of a pick up truck, and then set off to tour New York City. The truck will drive through New York City’s five boroughs during Sukkot parking at varied locations over the course of the holiday.
Welcoming one visitor at a time, regardless of religious identity, the sukkah will offer a curated view of the sky. Rather than ask New Yorkers to come to a set location, A Wandering Sukkah comes to them and offers an opportunity to simply pause, enter the enclosed space, regard the sky, and listen as the city rushes by.

About Assembly Required
An art collective founded by artists Danielle Durchslag and Ryan Frank that explores contemporary ritual through dynamic, visual and interactive installations. Their inaugural project, A Sukkah Salon, was an artist-designed and constructed sukkah on a Manhattan apartment balcony that functioned as a space for both creative and religious ritual. A Wandering Sukkah at the Invisible Dog Art Center is the next iteration of this ongoing project.
About Invisible Dog
The Invisible Dog Art Center opened in October, 2009, a raw space in a vast converted factory building with a charmed history and an open-ended mission: to create, from the ground up, a new kind of interdisciplinary arts center. Over the last few years, over 50,000 people have attended our events: visual art exhibits; dance, theater, and music performances; film screenings; literary arts and poetry readings; lectures; community events; and more.
