Governors Island, NY

Creative Time is pleased to announce its new public art quadrennial: PLOT, taking place on historic Governors Island and featuring international artists responding to the island with new, sire-responsive artworks. The first edition of PLOT, This World & Nearer Ones, is curated by Mark Beasley. The project is produced in association with Governors Island Preservation and Education Corporation, the National Park Service, NYC & Company, and the Office of the Mayor. The first edition, entitled This World & Nearer Ones, will be curated by Mark Beasley. PLOT09 will draw thousands to Governors Island to explore the artwork and numerous other public programs. PLOT09 is free and open to the public, and will open on June 27.
This World & Nearer Ones will intervene in the architectural and natural fabric of the island, transforming its historic buildings and vast lawns—from the iconic Fort Jay to St. Cornelius Chapel—through installation, performance, video, and auditory works, inviting audiences to reconsider the island’s past and future.
