New York, NY 10011

In honor of the debut of the exhibition Masked Vigilantes on Silent Motorbikes and the 50th anniversary of what is now commonly referred to as the Vignelli” subway map, Poster House is pleased to partner with the New York Transit Museum for a discussion about design in the New York City transit system and artists’ public interventions. This panel discussion will include insights from curatorial and artistic perspectives.

First, guest curator RJ Rushmore will share some of the public art featured in Masked Vigilantes. Then, New York Transit Museum curator Jodi Shapiro will discuss the development of the MTA’s iconic visual identity. Finally, artist Jilly Ballistic will go over her work remixing the MTA’s timeless designs, as well as other posters found in the subway system, into new works of art. The program will conclude with a Q&A—questions strongly encouraged!

This program is presented in partnership with the New York Transit Museum. Registration information will be shared with both institutions.
