October 24 – January 2014
Opening Reception at the Port Authority:
Saturday, Oct 26, 6-8pm
Garment District Alliance and CCNY present Phantom City, a new exhibition curated by Jesse Cesario. Featuring mural-sized black and white images, this site-specific installation creates an unlikely looking glass that alters the usual perspectives of the utilitarian Port Authority Bus Terminal. Appropriating the windows of a defunct greeting card store, Cesario has created a virtual portal to other cities, places, and times. Mixing cinematic moments and surrealistic imagery, the large-scale photographs encourage viewers to experience a visual movement as part of their daily commute.
Directions to Phantom City: Enter the Port Authority Bus Terminal on 8th Avenue between 41st & 42nd streets, passing through the two sets of long glass front doors. Immediately bear left and take the escalator to the second floor. The installation is to your left.
