Terminal 5

It would make a beautiful ruin, said Eero Saarinen of his now obsolete airport terminal. Terminal 5 was a group show curated by Rachel K. Ward at Saarinen’s landmark 1962 TWA Terminal at JFK Airport. Originally scheduled to run from 1 October 2004 – 31 January 2005, the Port Authority closed the exhibition after the “controversial” opening night. Initiated as a form of “dedication to the building” the exhibition explored themes of the history and nature of travel, and responded to the significance of the architecture itself. The catalogue served as the secondary site for participating artists, writers and critics. Designed by David Reinfurt, it is divided into three sections: architectural history, exhibition information, and air travel related essays, and includes extensive visual material related to the site and the exhibition. Contributions by Paul Andreu, J.G. Ballard, Glenn O’Brien, Nicolas Bourriaud, Douglas Coupland, Ben Davis, Dave Eggers, Norman Foster, Dan Graham, Ana Honingman, J.T. LeRoy, Hesse McGraw, Jonas Mekas, David Pascoe, Nina Rappaport, Susan Saarinen, Brian Sholis, Robert Smithson, Marc-Olivier Wahler, and Rachel K. Ward. The exhibition included works by Vanessa Beecroft, Douglas Coupland, Kendell Geers, Dan Graham, Toland Grinnell, Fabrice Gygi, Mark Handforth, Jenny Holzer, Ryoji Ikeda, Just Another Rich Kid, Matthieu Laurette, Jonas Mekas, Aleksandra Mir, Jonathan Monk, Tom Sachs, Anri Sala and Tobias Wong.
