NEW YORK — With next month’s opening of a pop-up store and gallery and an exhibition titled “The Art of Knit,” the United Colors of Benetton will once again be living up to its controversial reputation.

Visitors to the 2,200-square-foot space will see artist Erik Ravelo’s “Lana Sutra” knitted sculptures, life-size figures of couples entwined in various Kama Sutra positions. Ravelo once said of the Lana Sutra series, “I’m a human being and I don’t believe in borders. I think the world belongs to everyone born on Earth. This is my planet, our planet. No man is an island. Yes, I was born on Cuba but, above all, I was born on planet Earth. I like to think that Lana Sutra talks about universal love which cancels diversity.”
