****Consuming Places was originally conceived for Creative Times nineteenth year in the magical Brooklyn Bridge Anchorage, which is now unavailable due to national security concerns. The architects, artists, and designers in the exhibition were specifically commissioned to activate a block of majestic nineteenth-century structures along the waterfront. Situated in three structures between Water Street and the newly renovated Empire-Fulton Ferry State Park the Tobacco Warehouse (Bill Fontana), Empire Stores (Greyworld), and the Stable at 16 Main Street (Asymptote, Marjetica Potrc, and 212box)Consuming Places furthers Creative Times thirty-year mission of invigorating unusual and neglected public sites with fresh artistic visions.
