Curator Gets “Sandwiched” in Brooklyn

More than ten years later, Danish curator Jacob Fabricius is restaging his “Sandwiched” project at the Fulton Street Mall in Brooklyn. For a seven-day stint from March 7 to 12, Fabricius will don seven sandwich boards designed by artists David Horvitz, Sergej Jensen, Kerry James Marshall, Alfredo Jaar, Lena Henke/Marie Karlberg, and Margaret Lee. You can catch him from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day.

In an email sent out to friends, Horvitz (whose board is pictured above) wrote, “Mine was the first one, based on a flag I made for Performa, about the loss of the night sky with the advent of the 24 hour day/ street lighting/ light pollution/ nonstop production/consumption/ etc.”

Fabricius staged the original “Sandwiched” project at the Fulton Street Mall in 2003 with funds from Wrong Gallery and the Public Art Fund. For that iteration, Bernadette CorporationLeon GolubSharon HayesBen KinmontJohn MillerAleksandra MirAdrian PiperJulia ScherMichael Snow, and Valerie Tevere designed boards for him.
