From September 20 to September 27, Night Watch, a floating installation created by artist Shimon Attie, will travel around the shores of Staten Island, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Roosevelt Island, Governors Island, Liberty Island, and New Jersey. This multi-media installation displays portraits of refugees and asylees on a 20-foot-wide by 12-foot-tall LED screen mounted on a slow-moving vessel. Notably, this installation will be traveling around during the United Nations Annual General Debate, in an effort to represent refugees of various backgrounds and push for support for immigrant rights.
