About the Project
In January 2010, Creative Time and P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center presented Creative Time Open Door at P.S.1, an open call for New York–based artists to propose projects for the public realm, as part of P.S.1’s Free Space program. Artists were invited to apply for meetings with the curators of both organizations, during which they received feedback regarding their potential public projects. Participating curators from Creative Time included Nato Thompson, Chief Curator, and Meredith Johnson, Curator and Director of Consulting; from P.S.1, Klaus Biesenbach, Director, and Neville Wakefield, Senior Curatorial Advisor; and from MoMA, Connie Butler, Robert Lehman Foundation Chief Curator of Drawing.
Creative Time Open Door at P.S.1 was an extension of Creative Time’s Open Door program, which began in 2003 as a resource for artists who sought guidance in realizing public art projects. Through the program, artists met with Creative Time staff members and discussed the obstacles inherent in creating art for the public realm.
