Adam D. Weinberg and David Hammons discuss Day’s End

Adam D. Weinberg and artist David Hammons discuss the conception of Hammons’s permanent public art project Day’s End. This monumental installation is located in Hudson River Park along the southern edge of Gansevoort Peninsula, directly across from the Museum. Day’s End takes inspiration from an artwork of the same name by Gordon Matta-Clark. In 1975, Matta-Clark cut five openings into the Pier 52 shed that formerly occupied the site. Hammons’s Day’s End is an open structure that precisely follows the outlines, dimensions, and location of the original shed.
