 Analogue Sites, a public art exhibition exploring the intersection of art, architecture, and cultural diplomacy by artist and preservation architect Jorge Otero-Pailos, debuts on April 1 on New York’s Park Avenue. Comprising three monumental steel sculptures wrought from fencing that surrounded the former U.S. Embassy in Oslo and inspired by the historical significance of Cold War-era embassies as places of cultural exchange, Analogue Sites highlights the role of American modern art and architecture in cultural diplomacy and advocates for the preservation of these modernist masterpieces at this critical moment of their decommissioning. On view through October 31, 2024, Analogue Sites is installed along Park Avenue at East 53rd, 66th, and 67th Streets to respond to and engage with iconic modernist landmarks including the Seagram Building, the Lever House, and the historic Park Avenue Armory.
