Improv Everywhere Organizes Art Gallery Opening on Subway Platform

Improv Everywhere recently organized an art gallery opening on a NYC subway platform featuring ordinary objects found in the area as the “art”, each with it’s own descriptive placard, such as: “Convergence” (1962), electrical conduit and fittings, tile wall.

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 continue reading for photos, text from our placards, and reports from the agents involved.
