Times Square Arts Partners with Artis Collective FAILE to bring Wishing On Your to Times Square
FAILE: Wishing on You will be on view in Times Square August 17 – September 1
Broadway Plaza between 42nd and 43rd
Wishing on You, the Brooklyn-based artist collaboration FAILE’s installation reimagining Asian prayer wheels in the context of Times Square’s kaleidoscopic history will be unveiled on Monday, August 17th at 11:00am in Broadway Plaza between 42nd and 43rd Streets. Visitors are invited to participate in the installation by spinning a wheel that will move the sculpture and power neon lights on the piece.
Wishing on You draws on Asian traditions to explore contemporary patterns of consumption, desire, and myth-making. FAILE is known for re-conceiving sacred forums from around the world into highly interactive public sculptures.
Wishing on You will be on view in Times Square from August 17 to September 1.
This project is presented in collaboration with FAILE: Savage/Sacred Young Minds, running at the Brooklyn Museum from July 10- October 4, 2015.
