The Faurschou Foundation’s New studioMDA-Design Space Opens in Brooklyn

By whitewall

January 17, 2020

Last month, the Faurschou Foundation opened a new space in Brooklyn. Designed by studioMDA, the Greenpoint location is one of three new permanent projects by the foundation—joining spaces in Copenhagen and Beijing. Once an industrial warehouse, the stunning new location now offers 12,000 square feet of exhibition space, designed to showcase large-scale and experiential installations from the foundation’s own collection.

studioMDA focused on maintaining the building’s history—from keeping its original industrial façade and features like exposed ceiling joints—and implemented a glass storefront. Additionally, glass blocks on the outer facing walls were put in, allowing for natural light and a new street view.

Inside, the space is divided into three galleries—its main gallery with high ceilings and skylights for large-scale works, a smaller white-box room, and a space that combines modern and industrial aesthetics.

Inaugurating the newly renovated building is the exhibition “The Red Bean Grows in the South”—on view through April 11. Named for a Chinese Tang Dynasty poem, the show features works by nearly 20 renowned artist like Ai Weiwei, Georg Baselitz, Louise Bourgeois, Danh Vo, Yoko Ono, Cecily Brown, and Tracey Emin. Including a wide variety of media, the pieces on view explore a number of themes surrounding the concepts of dreams and longing, including war, idealism, lust, violence, escapism, politics, and hope.
