Storage & Transportation
“Laundromat,” by the famous Chinese artist Ai Weiwei, addresses the current refugee crisis. The installation (Deitch Projects, NYC) features racks of actual clothing and shoes taken from refugee camps housing Syrian immigrants. Bohren’s received numerous overseas containers, stored the contents, and delivered them to the gallery for installation.
