New Museum of Contemporary Art

The New Museum of Contemporary Art and Sciame Construction are proud to announce the opening of Carsten Holler’s 2 story slide exhibition which was recently installed inside…that’s right…inside the building’s gallery floors. How did a two story slide fit into an already existing building you ask? Sciame was assigned the task of removing two sections of concrete floor, one at the fourth floor and one at the third floor, which allowed sections of the slide to be lowered and pieced together.

The 102ft slide is on display from October 26th, 2011 to January 15th, 2012 along with Carsten’s other creative artwork that has been produced over the past 18 years. And yes, you are allowed to ride the slide!

Below is a link showing photos and video footage of the construction process:
