November will usher in a host of trippy, kaleidoscopic projects and dream-like exhibits from Times Square to The Bowery. Gorilla installations representing our presidential candidates quickly removed this month, the High Line keeps this year’s presidential campaign alive with its installation “I Want a President.” Artists continue to remind us of the less-fortunate, with the annual Canstruction charity design exhibition, and reflect on ethnicity, technology and our insatiable desire to snap a photo.
Here are 14 exhibits and installations in NYC not to miss in November.
14. The Astor Place Cube Finally Returns
The highly anticipated return of the Astor Place cube, Alamo, took place on November 1st to an excited crowd of onlookers. The cube by Bernard “Tony” Rosenthal has been away for two years for protection and restoration during the streetscape redevelopment of Astor Place. The installation took about two hours by the NYC Department of Design and Correction, and the cube was re-inaugurated with a spin. More photos here.
