Tours depart from the historic Essex Street Market (southeast corner of Essex and Delancey Streets)


Bik Van der Pol’s two-part commission consists of a massive text piece—the phrase “As Above, So Below” painted on the surface of a parking lot adjacent to the historic Essex Street Market and designed to be read from above—as well as a series of walking tours that lead visitors around the Lower East Side to consider the past, present, and future of the built environment in three dimensions.

Walking tours depart the Bik Van der Pol exhibition space in the historic Essex Street Market daily; please check the calendar at the information desk for times and details.

ABOUT CREATIVE TIME

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.

 

Creative Time seeks to convert the power of artistsʼ ideas into works that inspire social change and stimulate public dialogue on timely issues, while initiating a dynamic conversation among artists, sites, and audiences. A vanguard presenter of public art in New York, Creative Time recently began presenting national and global projects and initiatives, making it the only public arts organization with programs that have reached from New York to New Orleans, Haiti to Hanoi, and Dubai to Denver. These projects further Creative Timeʼs belief in the importance of artists in society and the power of art to raise consciousness, expose injustices, and imagine a better world.
