The Hive is Judith Modrak’s permanent installation at ABC No Rio, a center for art and activism on New York’s Lower East Side. ABC is known internationally as a venue for social and political engagement. The Hive began in 2000 as part of The Ides of March Biennial, a building-wide art invitational. During the Ides of March exhibitions, the entire 5-story tenement became home to over 50 artist projects. For the past decade, The Hive has undergone a transformation every few years. ABC is securing funding to build a new art center and when this occurs the current structure will be demolished. The Hive will live on in the form of this video documentary and in a few preserved pieces. Experience the Hive more fully by watching the video!
