The New York City Department of Design and Construction (DDC) and Times Square Arts have partnered to turn the construction fences in Times Square into a large scale canvas for a rotating contemporary art gallery. Between September 2013 and Spring/Fall 2015, there will be approximately six exhibitions with each changed periodically.

Times Square Transformation (TSqT) seeks artists and curators to make submissions that explore the themes of transformation, systems and exchanges, which characterize both the infrastructure beneath Times Square as well as the cultural life above. The visual artwork must consider a modular design for two sizes of vinyl mesh that will be affixed to the metal fencing used to section of construction areas.

As Times Square is a dynamic and diverse commercial site, TSqT is looking for ambitious artwork that will be appropriate for all 24/7 audiences, but still communicates a sense of edginess that has been at the cornerstone of the Times Square identity. TSqT will consider artists, designers and curators of NYC institutions who may want to use this outdoor gallery for new works or as an extension of existing exhibitions. This display should function as an independent exhibit on its own right and not require explanatory text.

ArtPlace America and the National Endowment for the Arts support the project and artist’s role in helping to maintain the vitality of the public space throughout the physical transformation.
