10. Times Square Midnight Moment
Ka-Man Tse for Times Square Alliance
Every month a new video installation takes over the screens of Times Square at midnight for Midnight Moment, the world’s longest running digital art exhibition. This month from 11:57 PM to midnight, the screens will be taken over by artist William Kentridge, working with video editor Janus Fouché, incorporating text and imagery from a chamber opera Kentridge conceived and created called Waiting for the Sibyl (2019). Midnight Moment this month is presented by Times Square Arts in partnership with Gallery Met at The Metropolitan Opera on the occasion of its production of Alan Berg’s Wozzeck, directed by Kentridge and premiering December 22nd 2019 through January 22nd 2020.
Midnight Moment is the world’s largest, longest-running digital art exhibition, synchronized on electronic billboards throughout Times Square nightly from 11:57pm to midnight. Presented by the Times Square Advertising Coalition and curated by Times Square Arts since 2012, it has an estimated annual viewership of 2.5 million.
