Karin Ferrari: Rooftop Temples of New York City

In stock (1000 items available)
In late 2019, artist Karin Ferrari came to New York City to research what she describes as “pseudosacred commercial architecture” for six months. These structures are particularly ubiquitous in the United States, where many casinos, banks, hotels, shopping centres, and entertainment facilities imitate and reference mythical and sacred building elements. This compact volume collects Ferrari’s pictures of the city’s “rooftop temples” at a pivotal moment in the city’s history.
