On the occasion of the opening of Swiss Institute’s new home at 38 St Marks Place, SI has commissioned and borrowed a series of semi-permanent works and installations exhibited in non-gallery spaces of the building. In the reception area, reading room, stairways, hallways, roof, elevator and other interstitial spaces, artists have contributed to the daily life of the building with artworks in the form of plants, scents, curtains, murals, clothing, seating, a visitor survey and more.
