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 becomes 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 directed by Janice Ahn and in a few preserved pieces. Experience the Hive more fully by watching the video!
