I couldn’t resist posting this. The brilliant bunch at Improv Everywhere held an art gallery opening in on a subway station platform. “Agents” arrived slowly, acting as strangers, and enjoyed a small bar offering champagne (?) to sip while taking in the “art”. The placards written for the “pieces” are what I enjoy most:
Locked Box #2 (1988)
Metropolitan Transit Authority
This extremely subtle piece reexamines the assumption that art must be visually accessible to be important and identifiable as a creative work. This artist explores the limitless possibilities of the hidden here, allowing the viewer to reevaluate underlying preconceptions, and to recondition the inner mind to work with the perception of the commonplace outer space.
