The 50 Most Iconic Artworks of the Past Five Years

35. Black Acid Co-op by Jonah Freeman, Justin Lowe, and Alexander Singh

Black Acid Co-op was a bizarre experience. The work filled the entire space of Deitch Projects in Soho, and transformed it into, as Roberta Smith puts it, a "warren of some dozen rooms, interiors, and passageways; it includes a burned-out home methamphetamine lab, a red-carpeted gallery of pseudo-artworks and a hippie haven." While walking from room to room in the chaos, the strange psychology of the world outside of the Black Acid Co-op begins to build and becomes nearly convincing, which makes the exit from the maze so much stranger.
