Curated by Jesse Cesario
Exhibition: October 24 – February 21, 2014
Opening Reception: At the Port Authority on Saturday, October 26, 6-8pm
Garment District Alliance and Baxter St at CCNY present Phantom City, a new exhibition curated by Jesse Cesario. Featuring mural-sized black and white images, this site-specific installation creates an unlikely looking glass that alters the usual perspectives of the utilitarian Port Authority Bus Terminal. Appropriating the windows of a defunct greeting card store, Cesario has created a virtual portal to other cities, places, and times. Mixing cinematic moments and surrealistic imagery, the large-scale photographs encourage viewers to experience a visual movement as part of their daily commute.
Directions to Phantom City: Enter the Port Authority Bus Terminal on 8th Avenue between 41st & 42nd streets, passing through the two sets of long glass front doors. Immediately bear left and take the escalator to the second floor. The installation is to your left.
This exhibition is part of the 2013 Fashion District Arts Festival.
