Just inside, Firelei Báez’s compelling tapestry-like installation stands out on a white wall. “Firelei’s work has taken a new sculptural, architectural direction that is really exciting,” says her dealer, Wendi Norris, who has her own booth just inside. “And since, fortuitously, the InSitu installation is placed directly across from our booth, I have the lucky position of getting to stare at it all day.” New Yorkers, take note: Firelei’s newest installation, in the Harlem 163rd Street subway station, was unveiled today.
