greg sholette: fifteen islands for robert moses

Posted on February 4, 2012


Making it up as I go along, I’ve decided to include New York City gentrification art and activism in this blog where I talk about my neighborhood of Bed-Stuy.

Don’t miss Sholette’s show at the Queens Museum of Art (February 5th – May 20th 2012).

Greg Sholette asked a group of fellow artists and theorists: “If you could add an island to New York City, what would that new landmass be?” Sholette then made models from their ideas and placed them about the waterways of the Panorama of the City of New York, built for the 1964 World’s Fair by city planner Robert Moses.   Participating collaborators: Hanna Shams Ahmed, Brett Bloom, Larry Bogad, Marc Fischer, Aaron Gach/ Institute for Tactical Magic, Libertad Guerra, Dara Greenwald, Marisa Jahn, Karl Lorac/ Themm!, Ann Messner, Ted Purves, Rasha Salti, Dread Scott, Jenny Polak, Jeffrey Skoller and Nato Thompson.
