The Nightline group exhibition is on at New York’s 44th Drive Pier in Long Island City took place on August 16.
The outdoor show featured work by Brian Kokoska, Clark Filio, geetha thurairajah, Kayode Ojo, Larissa Lockshin, Quay Quinn Wolf and Stephanie Hier. Small-scale works were placed quietly along the pier, as if more of a happening, or temporary intervention/invitation.
The press release is minimal, providing only four lines that hints at the curatorial premise, creating more of a mood around driving and the experience of looking at a skyline. Whether we are soothed by “the monotone voice of the talking head that echoes out of a speaker,” or the falling cranes that once upheld order, the artists respond and meditate on “living through a time of fear.”
