The Museum of Modern Art’s PS1 outpost in Long Island City is about to become a bit more environmentally conscious, thanks to an upcoming collaboration of concerned artists, economists, ecologists, architects, and thinkers at large. Their goal? To address through art and interaction the challenges faced by our civilization—and the natural world around it—as we barrel along.
According to the curator, MoMA’s Klaus Biesenbach, “EXPO 1: New York focuses on some of the most pressing issues of the day set against a backdrop of economic and socio-political concerns that have made a dramatic impact on daily life.”
Between interactive art installations, film viewings, lectures, architectural presentations, and more, this exhibition looks to prove timely in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. And as it runs from May 12 through September 2, there’s no excuse for missing out—just hop on the G train. Click through for more on scheduling, participants, and additional information. —MN
