The 2015 edition of Art in Odd Places, RECALL, celebrates the festival's odd-numbered milestone anniversary—11—with a survey of its first ten years. RECALL curators Sara Reisman and Kendal Henry consulted with the festival’s past curators to establish an understanding of Art in Odd Places’ history along 14th Street in Manhattan. Forty-seven past artists were invited—some deciding to reprise their past artworks while others opting to present new projects—as a snapshot of the more than 500 artists who have participated in the past ten years in New York City. In the process of bringing artists back to 14th Street, the artists’ installations, interventions, and performances reveal how the east to west swath of 14th Street has been transformed. That the festival is a cross-section of the city gives viewers a sense that while New York City often looks like a new, transformed city, in certain places it feels like little has changed, and the varied character of this two-mile stretch—in a continual state of flux—retains the qualities that have long defined New York City: its contradictions in wealth and culture from low to high and middling, and the awkward and beautiful intersections of planned public space with provisional architectures and improvisational interventions into the public realm.More info See more free New York City events & things to do on Nifty NYC.
