The Memphis Brooks Museum of Art is working with New York artist Kurt Perschke as part of the museum’s centennial celebration.
Perschke uses RedBall Project to encourage exploring each city’s unique architectural landscape and history. By squeezing the installation between buildings and hoisting it over pedestrians’ heads the ball punctuates overlooked spaces.
“On the surface, the experience seems to be about the ball itself as an object,” said Perschke, “but the true power of the project is what it can create for those who can experience it. It opens a doorway to imagine ‘what if,’” he said. “The larger arc of the project is how each city responds to that invitation and, over time, what the developing story reveals about our individual and cultural imagination.”
RedBall is just the first of many outdoor exhibitions. Stay tuned for upcoming outdoor exhibitions that, as time goes on, will offer Memphians outside museum experiences in many different ways in many different places.
