Grucci realizes Black Square for the opening of the Garage Museum in Moscow Russia Jun 11, 2015

Jun 11, 2015 - Fireworks by Grucci completed their first ever commissioned production in Russia. 




Collaborating with contemporary artist Rirkrit Tiravanija in the design of Black Square, FbG designed and fabricated the PixelBurst-tm shells in their own factory then shipped into Russia for the installation and display.

The Black Square in the sky above the Garage Museum in Moscow was part of the day’s grand opening exhibitions and was popularly mistaken for birds.
