Nuit Blance in Greenpoint – Oct. 1

via Urban Omnibus:

Nuit Blanche, Oct. 1, 6pm – 1am – Greenpoint
Schedule + Directions

Via Urban Omnibus:

This free, nighttime festival of ephemeral public art will showcase the work of some of the established auteurs of this artistic genre, such as Krzysztof Wodiczko, alongside architects, such as Diller, Scofidio and Renfro (who are reprising their 1993 video “Soft Sell,” which critiques the re-development of Times Square in a way provocatively resonant with changes currently underway in Greenpoint) and a long list of emerging talent. The entire spectacle intends to encourage spectators “to re-imagine public space and civic life.” The Omnibus team, proud civic partner of the event, is particularly excited to check out the urban interventions of Chris Woebkin, the industrial photography of Nathan Kensinger and the joyful rainbows of Reid Bingham and Sean McIntyre.
