Carsten Höller’s 3-Story Slide Opens at New Museum Tomorrow [Video]
Starting tomorrow, the New Museum will double as a fun house. Just in time for Halloween. The newest art installation currently links the fourth and second floors with a ginormous metallic slide.
The 102-foot slide is the vision of artist Carsten Höller, who’s also constructed such ambitious installations is other cities abroad, including Berlin, Milan, and São Paolo. Patrons of the New Museum have the option to suit up in helmets and pads to take the three-story plunge, as it were. There are probably waivers to be signed…
Anyway, the museum recently released a handful of teaser trailers for the new exhibit (if you can even call it that).
Carsten Höller: Experience is on display until January 15, 2012.
