Penetrable and Orange Cube 48

The Hispanic Society Museum & Library, in Washington Heights, has two amazing immersive and interactive works of art on their plaza right now. "Penetrable" by the late Venezuelan artist, Jesús Rafael Soto. He is most known for his kinetic and movement-filled works. "Penetrable" is made of suspended yellow plastic tubes hanging from a steel grid. Viewers can move through the tubes and it was so cool to be enveloped within them and watch them move to and from as others engaged with the art.
Argentinian artist, Marta Chilindron’s “Orange Cube 48” is currently installed on the lower terrace. “Orange Cube 48” is a folding interactive piece made of 66 square panels, hinged together like an accordion. If they were to be folded closed, they would form a perfect cube. The bright orange walls create a maze that was fun to walk through, like a mirror maze but without the chance of getting whacked in the face!

I really want to get back to the museum to explore the collections inside, too!
