Join them for Amnesia Atómica NYC, a seven-day public exposition centered around artist Pedro Reyes’s ZERO NUKES — a 30-foot-tall inflatable mushroom cloud intended to function as a beacon to bring experts, political leaders, and engaged citizens together to address nuclear threat. On view in Times Square from May 17–24, the sculpture will also serve as a central platform for a series of public programs and events designed to spotlight the voices of activists, artists, scientists, and community organizations driving conversation around nuclear non-proliferation. Amnesia Atómica NYC is presented by The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists and Times Square Arts, and curated by Pedro Alonzo, who specializes in ambitious artworks in public spaces.
