The NYC Green Cart Photography Commission
May 2010 – September 2011
The Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund has awarded a start-up grant to the Mayor’s Fund for New York City for the Department of Health to support the NYC Green Cart Initiative, which provides underserved urban communities ready access to fresh fruit and vegetables via hundreds of independently owned Green Carts.
The two-year photography commission documented the historic program through the perspectives of five emerging artists selected by Aperture Foundation, a New York–based nonprofit arts organization and leading force in the field of photography. The exhibition presented works in progress from the first year of the Aperture initiative, which culminated in a large-scale exhibition at the Museum of the City of New York in 2011.
Featuring the work of:
LaToya Ruby Frazier, Thomas Holton, Gabriele Stabile, Will Steacy, and Shen Wei
