Part of the New Museum’s exhibition “The Spatial Drive,” the Visitors’ alcove for The Spatial Drive was an installation in the lobby and Broadway window providing access to the two exhibitions accompanying the exhibition. This included a special edition of Blast, a serial publication which takes the form of a container filled with a variety of unbound “editorial” material, was published in collaboration with The X-Art Foundation. Considered as simultaneously a portable project space for the exhibition and an artwork on its own terms, Blast: The Spatial Drive comprised artists’ projects and a “pocket dictionary” on computer disk with a range of thematic entries. Including both original texts and excerpts of previously published works, The Pocket Dictionary of Spatial Drives was also available as a pocket-sized, perfect-bound book. Artists in the exhibition included: Marina Abramovic, Lewis deSoto, Gretchen Faust and Kevin Warren, Fred Holland, Sonia Labouriau, John Lindell, Rei Naito, Marylene Negro, Laurie Parsons, Fiona Templeton, and The X-Art Foundation.
