New York 1942 (2017-2018)

A curated installation of Gracie Mansion’s official rooms on the 75th anniversary of The People’s House becoming the mayoral residence.

The second in a series of installations, New York 1942 included artwork, documents, and objects focused on 1942, the year Fiorello La Guardia became the first mayor to inhabit the house. As a group, these objects depicted the evolving landscape of New York City and the profound cultural and economic forces that were transforming the five boroughs into a crossroads of progressive change.
