In 2017, artist Cristian Pietrapiana’s proposal to create an outdoor visual art installation was selected by the Department of Transportation Art Program of NYC. In partnership with Local Project, Mr. Pietrapiana created a six-panel temporary outdoor installation in Long Island City. During that year, students from Middle College High School, adults from the OHNY bike tour, and other tourist groups participated in an interactive artist’s presentation of the installation.
The installation, We Are All Tourists -original pieces shown at the gallery- highlights over six hundred years of history in this part of New York.
Diaries is Pietrapiana’s latest series where he intervenes pages of The New York Times, continuing with hisplay on lines, concepts and current affairs.
