Getting pretty excited for Thomas Hirschhorn’s Gramsci Monument over here at the offices of The New York Observer! The project, which is set to run July 1 through Sept. 15 at Forest Houses in the Bronx, will feature a theater, an exhibition space and a restaurant, among other amenities, and now it also has a website: http://www.gramsci-monument.com.

When things go live, the site will have a schedule of events and a streaming radio station. It actually already has a lot of information about the project, including photographs of the artist’s previous Monuments and some handy background information about Gramsci.

Have a look!
