MoMA PS1's 2018 summer installation, Hide & Seek, opened yesterday in the courtyard of the institution's Long Island City facility in New York. Designed by Minneapolis-based firm Dream the Combine, the winning pavilion of the 2018 MoMA and MoMA PS1 Young Architects Program will host the annual Warm Up series of outdoor concerts, which will feature different performers each Saturday during the summer. Dream the Combine principals Jennifer Newsom, AIA, and Tom Carruthers designed Hide & Seek to connect all of MoMA PS1s adjacent courtyards to one another and to the street beyond the walls, with low-slung, horizontal shade structures protecting pathways and seating areas from the summer sun. Suspended mirrors under each canopy can be moved by visitors or breezes, creating "dislocating views and unique spatial relationships across the space that foster unexpected interactions," according to a MoMA press release.
Hide & Seek will be open to the public until Sept. 3, and the first Warm Up party of the season will take place tomorrow, June 30.
