When Jencey Keeton, co-founder of Sweet Tooth Hotel, named its fourth installation “Intangible,” she didn’t really mean it. Featuring works made entirely of yarn and fabric, it would be an intricate installation that, in Keeton’s words, “you just want to touch.” And you could, just like past exhibits at the interactive art space in Victory Park. That was the plan at least.
Set to open April 18, “Intangible” was postponed due to COVID–19. It recently announced its new opening date: June 6. But there’s a change. When visitors return to Sweet Tooth Hotel, touching will no longer be allowed. So, through a weird twist of fate, the installation will live up to its name.
And because it’s reopening before most other experiential art venues in the country, people will be watching.
