Untapped New York is proud to serve as the media sponsor for No Longer Empty’s latest exhibition, “How Much Do I Owe You?” which opens in the former Bank of Manhattan Building in Long Island City on December 12th. The 14-story building will open its doors for the first time in 25 years for this 3-month curation.

For this exhibit, No Longer Empty commissioned 26 artists from 15 countries to create site-specific artwork in  a “personal and conversational exploration into the new iterations of currency, value and exchange at this time of financial flux, growing debt and job insecurity.”

No Longer Empty aims to  widen the public engagement for contemporary art, to promote the work of imaginative and socially-conscious artists, and to demonstrate the capacity of art to revitalize communities. Most importantly, the site and the neighborhood play a formulative role in each of their exhibits. Not surprisingly, executive director Naomi Hersson-Ringskog holds a masters in urban planning from Columbia University, and the No Longer Empty team comes from diverse backgrounds in architecture, fine art curation, art history and social work.
