The clock tower, the former Bank of Manhattan building, will soon be home to an ambitious site-specific exhibition, How Much Do I Owe You? created by MFTA recipient No Longer Empty. The exhibition is a personal and conversational exploration into the new iterations of currency, value and exchange at this time of financial flux, growing debt, and job insecurity.
Inspired by the bank building and the surrounding neighborhood, 26 artists from 15 countries confront these issues and how they are negotiated in the workforce, housing market, and in the every day. Curated by Chief Curator, Manon Slome, the public will experience a variety of media, from sound installations, projections, and film to participatory projects, immersive installations and large scale sculptures.
Opening Reception: Wednesday December 12 at 7- 9pm with Special Remarks by Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer, Chair of NYC Cultural Affairs Committee
Exhibition hours: Thursday-Monday, 1-7 pm
Artist’s Workshop with MFTA Materials: The Writing’s on the Wall, A Collaborative Experience with Ghost of a Dream – Thursday, December 20, 6:30 – 8:30 pm at the bank building (free, RSVP required)
