Opening party Public Trust
This exhibit/live occurrence mixes artworks at the Flux Factory gallery and actions in public spaces and institutions throughout New York City, including re-enactments of protests staged by artists groups since the 1930s through the present; a mobile pacifist library making the rounds at NYC libraries; recommended reading lists curated by incarcerated New Yorkers; physical audits of the dirt inside banks; and a pamphlet using the Hayden Planetarium Sphere to describe the space junk in Earth’s orbit. The exhibition intends to get audiences to experience something unexpected at a familiar cultural cornerstone and explore and/or interrogate the assumptions that institutions make about their relevance to daily life. Public Trust is on display/in action from Sept. 7 to Sept. 30.
