Striking Beach Installation Art

The beach is a stunning transformative space that has inspired many artists. Katharina Grosse’s installation Rockaway! opens at the beach in Queens today. The work transforms “Ft. Tilden’s decaying aquatics building into a sublimely exhilarating exterior painting with her unique spray painting technique.” Inspired by Grosse’s striking use of the natural landscape, here are 10 other art installations on the beach where the organic, inorganic, and conceptual converge in fascinating ways.
