Improv Everywhere: Subway Art Gallery Opening

Filed under: Culture Jamming and Reality Hacking

From Charlie Todd of Improv Everywhere, March 18, 2009:

For our latest mission, 50 Improv Everywhere agents created an art gallery opening on the 23rd Street subway platform in Manhattan. We put up 30 placards next to objects in the space (pipes, electrical boxes, signs, advertisements), transforming them into works of art. The gallery included a bar, a coat rack, and a cellist. Enjoy the video first, and then visit here for photos, text from our placards, and reports from the agents involved.

There should be one or two big missions this spring / summer. New Yorkers, make sure you’re on the NY Agents List to get the details.
