Every night from 11:57pm until midnight a digital art exhibition takes over the giant electronic billboards in Times Square. Started in 2012, Midnight Moment has become the world’s largest and longest-running digital art exhibition with an estimated annual viewership of 2.5 million people. Every night this month the 1976 film Head of a Sad Young Woman by pioneering video artist Peter Campus will take over the Times Square billboards. For the entire film, a woman stares directly into the camera lens as if glowering at the viewer. The woman’s giant eyes will gaze at passersby in Times Square thanks in part to a partnership with The Bronx Museum of the Arts’ survey exhibition peter campus: video ergo sum, which is on view from March 6 until July 22, 2019. The artist will also host a public discussion at The Armory Show with Tina Rivers Ryan, Assistant Curator at the Albright-Knox Gallery, on March 10th at 3:00pm.
