SPACE PROGRAM: MARS
 Tom Sachs

Park Avenue Armory, 643 Park Ave., NYC (bt 66th & 67th St)
Tickets: $12

“One of the brightest, most entertaining, and most voraciously inquisitive artists on the contemporary scene.” –Artinfo

Artist Tom Sachs takes his SPACE PROGRAM to the next level with a four week mission to Mars that recasts the 55,000 square foot [Park Avenue Armory] as an immersive space odyssey with an installation of dynamic and meticulously crafted sculptures. Using his signature bricolage technique and simple materials that comprise the daily surrounds of his New York studio, Sachs engineers the component parts of the mission—exploratory vehicles, mission control, launch platforms, suiting stations, special effects, recreational amenities, and Mars landscape—exposing as much the process of their making as the complexities of the culture they reference.
