This World & Nearer Ones @ Governors Island

A good exhibition to check out!

No more excuses: it is time to visit Governors Island.Roberta Smith calls it “one of the truly special places in New York,” especially now that a new installation, sponsored by Creative Time, gives you access to buildings that have been off limits, like the officers’ houses. 

Anthony McCall
