The METRO Show + Editions | Artists’ Book Fair
Besides the broad array of enticing objects offered by more than three-dozen select galleries at the 2013 METRO Show, which opens for a five-day run on January 23, visitors will be greeted by Zigzag, an impossible-to-miss architectural tour de force, designed by Igor Siddiqui and Deborah Schneiderman, of ISSSStudio+deSc, who teamed up for the METRO Show. Starting at the Metropolitan Pavilion’s front entrance, fair-goers will encounter a continuous zigzag wall, nearly 100-feet long with heights ranging from 4 to 12 feet high, that extends right up to the entrance of the exhibition hall. Clad on one side with a digitally-generated graphic blue-gray custom-designed wall paper with white and fluorescent overtones, and painted a brilliant red on the other, the wall visually references the exhibition’s diverse content.
Joining the METRO Show this year is the Editions | Artists’ Book Fair, which was cancelled due to Hurricane Sandy, and will run concurrently next door at the Altman Building.
