BOSCO SODI: MURO
Performative installation on view from 10 AM, September 7, 2017
at Garibaldi Plaza in Washington Square Park, NYC
"It’s my first political performance and I just felt I had to do it now. I wanted to show that any wall is dismantleable. We, the public, can tear down walls when society gets together. It could be a mental, physical, or political wall—the point is, it’s ephemeral."
– Bosco Sodi
