23. Governors Island – Figment Summer Programs Arrive and Holocenter Sets Up a Summer Museum
The Billion Oyster Pavilion
Figment NYC hosts a number of summer-long programs on Governors Island through September. This year will include a sculpture program and a mini golf course. Also on display from City of Dreams is the Billion Oyster Pavilion from BanG Studios and Organic Growth, an installation made of discarded umbrellas, stools and old bicycle wheels.
Also on Governors Island, The Holocenter Summer Museum has been open each weekend since July at The Nolan Park house and gallery, and will remain on display through September 28th from noon to 6 pm. Of particular interest, “Art for Time Travelers: a 4D Video Sculpture of the Lower Manhattan Shoreline through Time.” This installation is derived from a film that will premiere in early 2016. Also on tap for August will be the third Stereoscopic Camera Obscura by Jose Vargas whereby the outside world is overlaid as a 3D projection.
