516 ARTS presents In the Balance, a large-scale installation by Karl Hofmann. This solo project transforms the front windows and entrance space of 516 ARTS to create a monumental, intricate and playful sculptural environment that utilizes form, color, and light. Using repurposed scrap building materials, Hofmann uses harmony and lyricism to build tension and interest with surprising and unexpected results.

Hofmann says, “My work is about the struggle to achieve both compositional and literal balance. The title of this project references the profound sense of uncertainty I feel as much of the world seems to teeter between order and chaos.”

By commissioning this new work, 516 ARTS is seeking to engage the cityscape and street traffic in Downtown Albuquerque with non-traditional visual art. For the end of 2017 and kicking off 2018, Hofmann’’s ambitious work re-activates the windows and entrance of the gallery along Central Avenue in a dynamic way.
