Daniel Arsham, Alex Mustonen, and Ben Porto of Snarkitecture are set to open their first permanent exhibition space called Snark Park at New York City’s Hudson Yards neighborhood. The renowned design studio will host a number of immersive installations for all ages alongside experimental retail experiences. Highlights include a collaboration with KITH Treats alongside Snarkitecture-designed limited edition objects with major international labels.
From their Loop installation with COS in 2017 to their “Fun House“ at the National Building Museum in DC this past summer, the forthcoming Snark Park project is heralded as an apogee of Snarkitecture’s achievements in both the contemporary art and retail worlds. “Our aim has always been to create architecture that performs unexpectedly, to explore the edges of art and architecture. With Snark Park we hope to encourage visitors to reconsider their built environment with childlike wonder,” said Daniel Arsham.
Snark Park will officially open its doors to the public on March 15, 2019. It will be constructed at the “Shops and Restaurants” section at 20 Hudson Yards on the second floor. Tickets for timed entry launch on January 31. Early updates will be made available via sign-ups at Snarkpark.com with additional information on Snark Park’s Instagram account.
