Luis Rosenfeld box on Allen St.
This subtle ten-foot-tall plywood art box appeared in the Allen Street Mall last Thursday, altogether baffling neighboring businesses and passersby. While at first ambiguous, the placement is essentially an installation by photographer and street artist Luis Rosenfeld. Each of the four panels features his poster photography (all are date stamped)
wheat-pasted poly-pasted alongside a bevy of tagger contributions.
UPDATE: Rosenfeld writes us to say that the box actually debuted at the Contemporary Art Fair at the end of October. It was an introduction to the practice of polypasting, which uses polyurethane as the adhesive. Good luck tearing that down.
The Rosenfeld art box is located north of Delancey Street, just behind the long-shuttered public restrooms.
