Having purchased a home in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, we have invited selected artists to apply their ideas and practices to the structure before we begin a renovation that will allow the Blasco family to reside in the townhouse. Based on what we can see of the potential in their previous work and the curiosity about how their existing processes will fit into a new context, the artists were encouraged to intervene into the hard structure of the house, incorporating the structural elements and interior fixtures into their pieces that are all made on site. As such, INTERVENTIONS 3 will investigate how the architectural elements of a house might turn out differently from what is generally accepted as normal or functional.
The third iteration of the Interventions project is located in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Previous ones were developed in a house in Fishtown, Philadelphia in 2012 and in Hudson, New York in 2015. More information at www.isidroblasco.com
