50 Artists: Art on the Grid

50 Artists: Art on the Grid

About the Exhibition

50 artists’ reflections on the pandemic at 500+ locations citywide.

Art on the Grid responds to this historic moment. Our lives have been completely transformed by the devastation of a global pandemic and the rise of one of the largest social justice movements in modern history. This spring, Public Art Fund invited 50 emerging New York-based artists to reflect on the current situation as a way to help our communities process the challenges we face together. In different ways, COVID-19 and the renewed urgency over systemic racism that led to protests in our streets and a movement for change have reshaped our day-to-day lives including the ways we interact and experience our city. The exhibition gives a highly visible public platform to artists whose regular creative outlets have been stifled, commissioning them to make new, responsive works of art. Art on the Grid enables the people of New York to reflect, to engage with the city in new ways, and to begin conversations with neighbors, friends, and strangers alike.

The exhibition roster features 50 artists from 18 countries. The artists were prompted to respond to the broad themes of reconnection and renewal, interpreted through their different perspectives and personal narratives. The resulting works draw on their experiences of New York City, its people, and places. They include reflections on moments of spontaneity, intimacy, isolation, loss, healing, and rebuilding, as well as aspirations to create a more just, inclusive, and equitable future. Now more than ever, public art–open, free, and accessible to all–has the ability to serve as a vital tool in the creative and spiritual recovery of our city.

The 50 artworks in Art on the Grid form a decentralized group exhibition on the city’s public transportation and communication infrastructure. Launched in two phases—on June 29 and July 27—the works are housed on 500 bus shelters’ advertising panels and on more than 1,700 wifi kiosks’ digital screens located across the five boroughs. Clusters of works by multiple artists along a bus route are intended to create new art viewing itineraries or simply to enliven the days of those who encounter them fortuitously. The captivating works conceived by these artists re-envision the city itself as an outdoor gallery, reminding us that even in times of adversity, artistic expression is indispensable to the creation of a culture that truly reflects and responds to our contemporary world.

Art on the Grid is curated by Public Art Fund Director & Chief Curator Nicholas Baume, Public Art Fund Curator Daniel S. Palmer, and Public Art Fund Assistant Curator Katerina Stathopoulou.

The French creators of the Statue of Liberty intended the statue to be a commemoration of the abolition of slavery in the United States. But black critics were vocal about what they saw as the hypocrisy of a monument to liberty in a land that lacked opportunity. With this in mind, I created this piece imagining a renewed statue reflective of an acknowledged past and an equitable future.

I want to give something back to the city that has been so generous to me over the years. This work is my interpretation of a regal West African figurehead, the Benin Bronze. It is a symbol of black strength, black endurance, and black revival. My hope is that this image will provide inspiration, harmony, and reassurance in a time when the world is in much need of restoration and healing.

My collage considers the importance of photography and design in the representation of Iranian museum objects in art historical publications. The work reveals how the formal elements of display and design influence the way we see and interpret an object or image. I am interested in the complex experience of the diasporic museum visitor—filled with cultural nostalgia, gazing at their long lost glorious past in an encyclopedic museum built through a fraught colonial history.

I am an artist-activist living in New York City, where I was recently granted asylum after fleeing persecution in my native Uganda. This new series of masks talks back to homophobia. Combining figurative and abstract elements, and employing a wide range of found objects, the masks portray queer archetypes that I’ve named after contemporary princes, princesses, and clans within the kingdom of Buganda’s royal family. Here, knotted plastic bags are woven through discarded tubing, and shredded to resemble hair.

On rest and resistance, Because we love you (to all those stolen from among us), 2020
Oil and acrylic on canvas
Courtesy the artist and James Cohan, New York

This work is in reference to the 70,000 black women and girls in the United States currently missing. Who continue to be unnamed and uncared for, even though this should be a national crisis. The figure in this painting is inspired by an archival image of civil rights activist Freedom Riders sleeping in church pews taken by photographer Paul Schutzer circa 1961. It is a particularly tender inter-generational scene of women resting and supporting each other.  In this place of respite, I center the transformative actions that can show ways beyond the spaces in our culture where care, love, and beauty are not naturally and equitably given.

Personal Choice #2 is a digital collage combining an “excerpted” archival image from the New York Public Library’s Media Collection, and an original text I wrote. The image features the Broyards, a large multiracial American family previously unaware of each other due to legacies of slavery and its impact on mixed-race children, during their family reunion. The Personal Choice series is part of my larger project Obligation to Others Holds Me in My Place, a study of intimacy at the scale of the immediate family.

New York is a city populated by dreamers. Even in our tumultuous present, these dreams are as vivid and abundant as ever. Here, a carpet of flowers symbolizes the constellations of people within the city who help each individual to realize their dreams. The shoulders we stand on are often simply those we stand shoulder to shoulder with: the dreamer is sustained by the same hopes that sustain those around her.

A chance encounter with B. Hawk Snipes on 34th street and 8th Avenue two years ago has resulted in a portrait of their life and the final component of a work entitled Movement Studies.  Our collaboration has documented B. Hawk’s transition from identifying as a gay man to a transgender non-binary femme and a social activist. This work is dedicated to the #blacklivesmatter and #blacktranslivesmatter movement, and to B. Hawk and their mother Mary Snipes.

This year has been a test for everyone’s mental health to say the least. The countless killings of black men, women, and children, the carelessness of our government, and the virus are incredibly triggering. Having to adjust can be difficult. Although photography helps with my depression it isn’t a fix-all. My healing process is ever-evolving and I wanted to create something that captures the continuous effort needed to stay afloat. This work is just a reminder to all that we will never give up on the pursuit of peace and happiness.

Sound of the Rain, 2020
Digital photograph
Courtesy the artist and Nicelle Beauchene Gallery, New York

My photographs privilege the interiority of individuals and communing groups, often investing in how people tend to their space and less so how they become clear to others. Sound of the Rain is a new commission that abstracts a direct view of the Mount Morris Fire Watchtower in Harlem’s Marcus Garvey Park. As such, it references the history of its official use and its current informal and sentimental roles.

The work is titled after a song by Solange, which includes an animated video by visual artist Jacolby Satterwhite. As I reflected on the various functions of the park, I recalled the video’s use of fire as a medium for growth.

I love the hand-painted signs of New York–they exude warmth and pride, signaling more than the services and products offered. In Pedlar, tools of different trades wait for the return of artisans to resume their craft. Pictured in isolation, these instruments call to mind bustling neighborhoods on pause, longing for the familiar.

Minnesota, 2020, as part of my ongoing Subway Series, depicts a man, unknown to me, seen during my commute several months back. The word “Minnesota” is printed across his hat in bold letters. At the time, I didn’t process this language as anything more than a state. Now, this place couldn’t feel more meaningful — as the home state of George Floyd, whose wrongful death has forced a global reckoning with systematic racial inequities. Sometimes it feels like coincidence or a conjuring, and then I remember that my community has been speaking for a long time with intense clarity. These moments are right in front of us. We just have to be ready to receive them.

My photographs often take the form of sculptural constructions that are photographed, printed, tiled, and re-photographed as new images. This image is a reworked 1980’s photograph of the Statue of Liberty covered in scaffolding. I have collaged into the image with objects from New York City stores, art from MoMA, and my own iphone photographs of the recent protests in the city among other things. I wanted to re-animate this old New York icon and update it for the current time.

This portrait of Vincent Cuffee is from a series titled Shinnecock Portrait Project. As Shinnecock tribal members, community members, and family members, one of the difficulties we all share are misconceptions portrayed by the media. Photography has traditionally been used as evidence of truth, which has been used historically against the Shinnecock to threaten our sovereignty and self-determination. This portrait, and the ongoing series, celebrates our continued presence and resilience.

I walked, I walk through the conurbated city to retrace his steps, to document the ecology of relationships that sustains this place. Time passed—time regained. And now, I construct a landscape through layers of images from the archive. The landscape is no longer that of Frederic Church, but a decentralized picture with no vast depth of field, no clarity. It is not a postcard, it is an amalgamating message.

The horizon is a timeless image that connects all of humanity, from ancient to modern. Right now, it’s like we’re at sea: we speak of “first waves,” “second waves,” and how tumultuous our present time is in the wake of the global pandemic. So I offer a vision of the ocean after a storm. Five sailors (which are all photographs of myself) gaze upon golden constellations, as Venus follows the setting sun over the far deep purple horizon. A diver with hands covering his mouth swims toward a mysterious heliotrope crystal. I hope this image reassures us that we must continue to work together to harness the storm in creating a collective and just future.

Venuses Balcony takes its title from Samuel R. Delany’s 1999 non-fiction classic Times Square Red, Times Square Blue. In a kind of eulogy for the Times Square red light district of the 1970s and 80s, Delany theorizes the nature of interclass contact. The Venus—whose balcony figures prominently throughout Delany’s first-person account—was one of many iconic theaters lost to gentrification. Painted in oil and acrylic on linen, Venuses Balcony captures the vibrant, bustling character of social relations in New York.

Urgency draws from collective archetypes around regeneration and rebirth, including: Birth of Venus, Mami Wata, Mahishasura Mardini, figures from Tarot, Jung’s Anima, the Phoenix, and other icons of femininity and power. This time has led me to think in depth about collective dreams, collective consciousness, and collectively held archetypes that are both primordial and future-facing. The work is also inspired in part by Iconologia, traditions of articulating moral emblems and psychic states in figurative form, compiled in Italy in the 1500s, a compendium of emblematic representation including but not limited to Egyptian and Roman iconography and myth.

Reflecting on this photograph months after taking it in the summer of 2019, it seemed to embody my uncertainty of the future ahead coupled with my curiosity to witness it. Today, this image still sits ambiguously between the ominous and inviting; offering my imagination the opportunity to fall into an unfamiliar and strange terrain past its depths. I was motivated to include this photograph not only for the illusionistic effect I hope it has at street level but also for how it plays against the function of the bus shelter as a site of departure for New Yorkers moving across the city.

I have been working on a series with the idea of protest fire as a simultaneous act of destruction and hope for change. I have been looking into street fires started during different protests around the globe for the destructive yet regenerative abilities of popular uprisings and how that dual capability can be paralleled in the plastic language of painting, as well as in the mechanics and philosophies of image-making in art.

A Great Day in Harlem is a rendition of a photograph by Art Kane, made in 1958, of fifty-seven Jazz musicians gathered in front of a brownstone on 126th Street in Harlem. I was thirteen when this image served as my introduction to the humanity behind Jazz, not just the sound of humanity. The strokes of paint and coffee on cotton that I used in this work create representations that are coded in improvisation and empathy. Redefining colonial instruments and re-working their function, creating Jazz is a reminder of the malleability of sound, life and history.

For this work, I not only wanted to replicate a bodega but also to highlight the moments which mimic Colmados in the Dominican Republic; depicting baked goods, root vegetables, and other items Americans may not immediately recognize. They function as everything stores but most importantly are a place where neighbors commune. The survival of these small businesses is so important to me. These spaces offer a little piece of home to those from the island.

The day was ending when I walked upon two kids jumping on the trampoline. They would climb into mid-air, hang there for a second, and fall back down.

Throughout my practice I have used personal narrative to explore larger issues that have impacted me, such as environmental racism, displacement, and generational trauma. I am interested in the idea that bodies inhabit a physical space to determine one’s perception of it. Using memories, I reconstruct people and places from my life. These figures are typically aware of, or responding to, the environment that confines them. The paintings and drawings are monochrome at times, and vibrant at others, to set the mood of what is being depicted. The cartoon-like figures are used to produce a sense of the uncanny, teetering on the edge of reality.

This new work is a banner, a seal, portal, flag, a garment — I don’t know yet. After a feverish dream in May, I knew how to achieve this new series: a flowing system of layers grommeted together to conceal and reveal different elements at different times. The cutout pleather patterns obscure intimate moments of photographic love. Akin to an older series of mine called the Acoustic Sound Blankets, this new body of work stems from radical-ornamentation histories.

In this global pandemic we contribute to the fragility and resilience of each other, each nation and tribe occupying a different space on the spectrum.

Destabilized ground and lungs devoid of air became a catalyst for a global revolution. The landscape shudders luminescent with promise or destruction.

Emergence is a digital collage I made based on Containers, a performance and photo series featuring Caribbean women wearing enclosed bodysuits that symbolize societal projections and stereotypes through the use of tropical prints. At the same time, the bodysuits use camouflage and opacity as opportunities for respite, introspection, and strategizing against a system of hyper-visibility and oppression. Emergence depicts the moment of taking off the Container: a moment of relief, agency, resilience and self-determination.

In my photographs I use found objects to restage filmic tropes that connote sensations of suspense, seduction, and crisis. Before making them, I pick up things I see when walking under the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway to my studio; loose gravel or car parts. In this work I made a sun out of a rearview mirror that had been run over. I see my pictures as a kind of abstract portraiture—imagery intended to evoke emotion rather than communicate a message. In that sense, the content of the work is abstract, but the pictures are constructed around where I live and what I see.

I hand embroidered this piece, Riverside Park NYC, as I do with almost all of my work, using the medium of Tatreez, traditional Palestinian embroidery. As a Palestinian-American, I grew up on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, overlooking Riverside Park, and for this piece I based the composition off of a boulder that is placed in the park outside my childhood apartment building. In imagining a future after this tumultuous year, I chose to re-imagine this vista of the park, an emblem representing home, envisioning a fantastical, magical and hopefully better future version of our city. Doing my part in dreaming up the world we want to live in.

Amidst the cornucopia of fresh and affordable produce, in the loud, crowded and narrow aisles of a neighborhood Italian grocery store, I feel echoes of my homeland thousands of miles away. With its fearless and resilient nature, the goat is a symbol of joyful aspiration in my work. Since “Gotham,” originally meant “Goat’s Town”, you find goats playing free in a vibrant Queens street corner, the one with my favorite store, signaling a brighter future.

AGAPE is a meditation on interdependence. As my father often recites “No man is an island, entire of itself.” These past few months have represented a personal moment of deep introspect and revelations on the things that matter most. To accurately capture that in an image is a lifelong quest, but solemn gestures and tender moments like these offer a useful language on what it means to be together but apart right now.

In this work, I contrast objects which relay finite information (the telephone and newspaper) with modes of communicating the ineffable, namely physical touch.

The characters and marks give essence to the individual lives fighting in protest for one cause of social justice. Enough is enough, we demand a change!

A plot twist can be an offering, an opening. Christina Sharpe’s Monstrous Intimacies: Making Post-Slavery Subjects (2009) includes an epigraph from Dionne Brand’s A Map to the Door of No Return: Notes to Belonging (2001) referencing a line from Derek Walcott’s poem Six Fictions (1997). Walcott writes: “Pray for a life without plot, a day without narrative.” Like Brand who wishes “[t]o be without th[e] story of captivity…”, I hold on to this Walcott line. While I reference relief from plot loops or narrative tropes, we must also consider, as these authors do, what it means to have liberatory relief from narrative itself: to live or sprawl beyond the relationality that reinforces all too familiar subjugation.

During quarantine I was awestruck by the flora and fauna transforming the city landscape. There were major drops in air pollution levels. Reports of rat adventures appeared in the newspapers. Grasses grew wildly to waist high in former dirt patches. Yellow dandelions dotted ball fields, then turned into snowy puffballs casting off their airborne heads to unknown destinations. In our natural world I found a small respite, a parable, a warning, and a blessing.

I noticed that perched among the branches were artifacts from systems in states of dysfunction: a stimulus check, the U.S. census, and a sample ballot for the cancelled (later reinstated) New York Democratic primary. Matches and a scratched tribute at the tree’s base foreshadow combustion.

With this painting I wanted to summon a sense of closeness and romance in this time without certainties and much isolated self reflection.

As the city starts to slowly open up, and I was thinking about the themes of reconnection and renewal, I wanted to make a work that felt uplifting. One day I was waiting at a bus stop in Brooklyn when I saw a man I know by the name of “Old School” spinning a basketball on his fingers. Basketball at the parks in the summer is a right of passage for Black boys and men, a way for us to escape and bond. So capturing this moment of joy was both nostalgic and about hope for the future.

This work shows touch, kinship, and intimacy as aspects of life that are still happening, though they may be publicly disregarded at the moment. I depict people kissing, while wearing protective masks and exhaling smoke. The masks are a part of daily life and the smoke is visible in the air, unlike COVID-19. The idea is about taking the risk to live, even when it can and has resulted in death. I’m Black, gay, and HIV positive. Many of the people in my images are. There is still stigma surrounding HIV, Blackness, and queerness in the wake of the pandemic. With the history of Black and queer narratives in mind, and our altered states of living and interacting, it felt necessary to continue to visualize love in more nuanced ways.

For people who travel a lot, jet lag is the very fabric of their everyday reality. But with the pandemic keeping everyone at home, there’s no need to adjust to new time zones. For some, this itself takes some adjusting. Enter Yes-Jet-Lag, the new jet-lag-inducing patch, which turns the intangible jet lag into a household object. It returns you to your normal sense of dislocation in your very own home. At a time when many lack access to health care and the right to be treated equally, this new product balances things out by helping the elite jet-setters feel a bit worse.

Nominators

Seeking to broaden our reach and assemble a group of 50 outstanding emerging artists who collectively reflect the richness and multiplicity of New York City’s artistic community, Public Art Fund’s curatorial team invited 30+ colleagues to submit names for consideration. These nominators include artists, curators, cultural leaders, and luminaries from academia and cultural non-profits. Through this process we were able to rapidly identify an extraordinarily diverse group of artists, while simultaneously deepening connections with peers in the field at a moment when so many of us felt disconnected by the pandemic.
