Creative Time: 33 Years of Experimental Public Art in NYC

Jul 11, 2006 At SITE Santa Fe

Creative Time, a New York-based non-profit organization, presents the most innovative art in the public realm. During Anne Pasternak’s 12-year tenure as President and Artistic Director of Creative Time, the organization has increased its commitment to artists working with untried media and has offered established artists fresh opportunities to experiment and engage new audiences. Pasternak will discuss art in public places based on her experience working with artists who ignite the imagination and explore ideas that shape society. She will examine the dynamic connections among artists, sites, and audiences—in projects that enliven public spaces.

Renowned projects under Pasternak’s artistic direction range from exhibitions and performances in the historic Brooklyn Bridge Anchorage, new sculptures in Grand Central Station, paintings in Coney Island, and skywriting over Manhattan to the Tribute in Light, the twin beacons of light that illuminated the former World Trade Center site six months after 9/11 in honor of the lives lost there. Pasternak has been committed to initiating projects that give artists the opportunity to innovate and reflect on contemporary society while engaging millions of people with art that permeates everyday urban life.
