Ruckus Manhattan (Hand signed), 1981
It was published by the public arts organization Creative Time to promote the 1981 installation of "Ruckus Manhattan", Red Grooms most iconic work, a monumental walk in installation he called a "sculpto-pictorama". Ruckus Manhattan was a multimedia, three-dimensional representation of Manhattan. The out-of-scale model, constructed of papier-mâché, wood, plastic, fiberglass, and vinyl, was designed to conform to Manhattan’s psychic dimensions, rather than its physical ones, and included such landmarks as the Apollo Theatre, the Brooklyn Bridge, Central Park, the Chrysler Building, the Stock Exchange floor, Trinity Church, and the World Trade Center. Finding inspiration in sources as diverse as cubism and newspaper comics, Red Grooms’s city-within-a-city provoked serious thought about everyday life in Manhattan.
