MINUS SPACE is thrilled to present Providence, Rhode Island-based artist Lynne Harlow’s new site-sensitive installation Tilt Toward the Sun. The project will be on view 24/7 in our Water Street windows from June 1-30, 2018.

Harlow’s exuberant new installation responds directly to the vibrancy of the gallery’s Dumbo location in a castle-like former horse stable nestled between the spans of the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges. Employing her signature materials of undulating vinyl rain curtain juxtaposed against graphically painted walls, Harlow’s installation will fill both of the gallery’s two oversized fourteen by eleven foot windows facing Water Street with a layered, highly-saturated color experience that merges installation, sculpture, and painting. Tilt Toward the Sun responds directly to the cadence of the window’s gridded mullions and shifting natural daylight, and advances the artist’s decades-long exploration of the illusive, yet sublime interaction of color, light, and material.
