Join NYC Parks for the closing event of the public artwork LINOUQ by Capucine Bourcart. From 2008 to 2012, Capucine Bourcart walked every street in Manhattan, from State Street to 220th Street, taking photographic details of walls along her route. This collection of photographs was used to create a photo-assemblage made of 4,170 metal squares that has hung from a chain link fence in a design inspired by Native Americans, the island’s first inhabitants.
The closing will feature a performance by Delwin Fiddler, Jr. of Lakota Performing Arts Program, with Native American flute, grass dance, and double beat.
This exhibition is made possible by the Art in the Parks: UNIQLO Park Expressions Grant, which supports the creation of artworks by New York City-based emerging artists at 10 parks that are highly visible, but underserved by cultural programming. The UNIQLO grant program will transform these locations into engaging art destinations with a series of rotating exhibitions and community events through 2019.
