LIVE from the NYPL: Creative Time & LIVE from the NYPL present THE LAST PICTURES


September 19, 2012

Program Locations:

Bryant Park
For all ages

On Wednesday, September 19, join artist and geographer Trevor Paglen, filmmaker Werner Herzog, and Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Tracy K. Smith for a special evening under the stars in New York's Bryant Park.  This event, co-presented by Creative Time and LIVE from the NYPL, will feature a reading by Smith; Herzog and Paglen in conversation about cultural artifacts, space exploration, and the legacy of human civilization; and a presentation of the images included in The Last Pictures--a golden disc of images created by Paglen, to be launched into outer space attached to the exterior of communications satellite EchoStar XVI. Telescopes will also be provided for viewing the night sky by the Amateur Astronomers Association of New York. The event is free and open to the public on a first-come, first-served basis.

Since 1974, Creative Time has presented the most innovative art in the public realm. The New York-based nonprofit has worked with over 2,000 artists to produce more than 335 groundbreaking public art projects that have ignited the public's imagination, explored ideas that shape society, and engaged millions of people around the globe.
