MIDNIGHT MOMENT, TIMES SQUARE, NEW YORK CITY
July 1 - 31, 2019
During the month of July, Federico Solmi’s new work American Circus will be presented every night at midnight on the billboards of Times Square as part of the Midnight Moment exhibition series. American Circus, a maximalist portrait of Times Square as an eternal carnival, filled with food stands, whirling amusement rides, American flags, fireworks, an absurd collection of iconic world landmarks, and signs advertising “EVERYTHING 99¢ OR LESS.” A cheering crowd seems to revel in a continuous spectacle of entertainment, consumption, and nationalism.
American Circus is a world premiere in a series of works titled The Great Farce. It is adapted from a nine-channel video installation by the same title that Solmi created for the 2017 B3 Biennial of the Moving Image in Frankfurt, Germany
