Sciame Sponsors Superpuesto

_MG_7994_3208

Sciame Construction is proud to be a sponsor of the newly opened Exhibit “Beyond the Supersquare” at the Bronx Museum of the Arts. In conjunction with the exhibit Sciame aided in the construction of Terence Gower’s SuperPuesto pavilion, located across the street at the Andrew Freedman Home. SuperPuesto explores the intersection between mid-20th Century modernism and the street-life of markets in Latin America. The wood, vinyl, and concrete pavilion resembles Marcel Breuer’s iconic house once located in the sculpture garden of the Museum of Modern Art. A small team of architects, artists, and carpenters constructed the temporary pavilion in less than three weeks. It will host a number of associated art and educational programs throughout its stay. It will be open for viewing from July 17th to November 16th 2014.

As part of our continued commitment to the arts, we invite you to view a short (5 min) dance-based film produced by our friends YAK Films (www.Yakfilms.com) – filmed exclusively at Sciame Construction jobsites. This short film will be included as part of this year’s Architecture and Design Film Festival at Tribeca Cinemas.

Skyscape
Directed by Yoram Savion, Kash Gaines & Ben Tarquin (2013)

Skyscape is created by YAK FILMS which is an international production team developing a unique style of street-based documentation of the global dance movement. At its core, YAK is a visual wrecking crew that uses multimedia to share the talents of young people around the world – and elevate and inspire the masses.

Sciame Construction Co. has given YAK unprecedented access to many of its New York City work sites to film original pieces with some of the word’s best dancers. The project aims to bring together urban dance styles with urban design and architecture, to transform and immortalize work sites during a specific stage of construction into a creative dance piece that can be shared all over the world.
