Inspired by the history of community gardens in New YorkCity, Life BetweenBuildings explores how artists have engaged the city’s interstitialspaces—“vacant” lots, sidewalk cracks, traffic islands, and parks, amongothers—to consider the politics of public space through an ecological lens.Bringing together select archival materials and artworks from the 1970s throughthe present day, the exhibition looks beyond a history of artists transformingbuildings (such as MoMA PS1) to how they have engaged the spaces in between,turning negative spaces into sites for common life: gardens, installations,performances, and gatherings.
