About the Exhibition

Pipilotti Rist (b.1962, Grabs, Canton of St. Gallen, Switzerland) creates a series of videos for the NBC Astrovision by Panasonic board, overlooking Times Square’s infamous traffic jams, high-tech screens, and billboards. Open My Glade, Rist's first public art project in New York, is composed of 16 one-minute video segments, which are interspersed with NBC and Panasonic programming at a quarter past the hour, every hour, from 9:15am to 12:15am. Rist's videos, presented amidst the backdrop of media-frenzied Times Square, appear to be in slow motion. These videos relay poetic, philosophical, and political statements through close-ups, flying camera work, and intense colors.
