Item details

This is one of Chor's favorite pieces (although he says he likes them all) in New York. It resides in an unused space in Midtown that was converted into a fishbowl of street art. The building’s owners collaborated with street art collective, Art Battles, to paint a mural inside the empty space on the corner of 40th Street and Avenue of the Americas, as part of the lot’s rebranding as 5 Bryant Park.
