Creative Time is a New York-based collective, that – over the past four decades – has commissioned and presented ambitious public art projects throughout New York City and around the world. Their work is guided by three core values: art matters, artists’ voices are important in shaping society, and public spaces are places for creative and free expression.
For their latest project, HEARD•NY, artist Nick Cave transforms Grand Central Terminal’s Vanderbilt Hall for one week: Students from the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater moved through the station wearing Nick Cave’s Soundsuits as part of the station’s centennial celebration. What people see and hear is a herd of thirty colorful life-size horses peacefully “grazing” and tperiodically breaking into choreographed movement—or “crossings”— accompanied by live music. The project was open to the public and free of charge, presented by Creative Time and MTA Arts for Transit as part of a series of events celebrating the centennial of Grand Central.
