Tauba Auerbach’s “Flow Separation”
July 1, 2018 - May 12, 2019
Brooklyn Bridge Park, Pier 6, and Hudson River Park, Pier 25, and Pier 66a

Commissioned by Public Art Fund and 14-18 NOW, a U.K.-based program commemorating the centennial of World War I, the visual artist’s first public work sees her coat a retired fireboat in a vibrant pattern in a twist on the tradition of dazzling, a form of naval camouflage. Generated through a process of marbling paper, Auerbach’s motif maintains the boat’s traditional red-and-white palette, and reflects the fluidity and dynamic motion of water.
