Terminal! (Part of The VOTE Project commissioned by NYLA)
Selected by a panel of art world luminaries including Nick Cave, Bob Faust, Thelma Golden, Jenny Holzer, Glenn Ligon, Andrea Rosen, and Bjorn Amelan, the commissioned artists were chosen from an open call. Each artist will receive an honorarium of $1,000 and be responsible for designing and executing one of the four letters of VOTE which will be on display in the lobby at New York Live Arts. In the weeks leading up to what may be the most important election of our lifetime, New York Live Arts has partnered with For Freedoms’ Awakening 2020 campaign to encourage more savvy and joyful civic engagement. Awakening 2020 aims to change the landscape of voting by educating people about the potential difficulties of voting, providing strategies for working around voter suppression, and supplying creative, free-use tool kits that instruct voters on how to engage their communities in this election. The VOTE Project is made possible in part by the generous support of Eleanor Friedman and will be available for in-person viewing October 19th – December 1st at New York Live Arts, 219 West 19th Street.
