10. unSeen Green at Green-Wood Cemetery

The interior and exterior of Green-Wood Cemetery Chapel will be criss-crossed with hundreds of pink parachute cords for a two week site-specific installation by Brooklyn artist Aaron Asis from October 5 to 20. This is just one of many interventions Asis will be performing on the “lesser appreciated elements” of the National Historic Landmark cemetery over the course of nine months, in a project entitled “unSeen Green.” According to the Green-Wood Historic Fund, the aim is to celebrate these locations within the cemetery as “places of both memorialization and of public congregation” and to juxtapose the “seen and the un-seen.”
