Krzysztof Wodiczko - New York City Tableaux: Tompkins Square
September 23 - October 28
Challenging himself to work inside the gallery space, Wodiczko created a new installation using projections to produce an entire environment, a labyrinth of photomontage as theater in which the viewing public is inserted into the projections as they walk through the space. Included in the installation was a second prototype of the Homeless Vehicle, and a videotape documenting the vehicle in use on the streets of New York. This work deals with issues of the needs and rights of homeless people, especially those of Tompkins Square with whom the artist has been working for three years.
Comprehensive catalog with essays by art historian Rosalyn Deutsche, Julie Courtney, an introduction by Papo Colo, a time line on Tompkins Square Park by Prof. Neil Smith. Also includes extensive photodocumentation of the Homeless Vehicle in use and documentation of the installation.
