LMCC presents River To River 2020: Four Voices from July 9 - August 30, 2020!
River To River, LMCC’s annual summer festival, was created in the aftermath of 9/11 with the intention to heal and celebrate New Yorkers’ resiliency through the power of art.
For almost 20 years, this principle is the driving force behind our festival that remains free and open to all to this day.
Responding to the challenges of this present moment, LMCC and the founding partners of River To River have reimagined
River To River 2020. We have invited four artists who explore social practice to create new works for New Yorkers as we navigate these uncharted waters together.
These projects have been reconfigured to channel important artistic voices to wide-ranging audiences with projects that start through virtual connection and lead to moments of physical presence, and public artworks that can be witnessed in open spaces over time.
The 2020 edition is curated by Lili Chopra and Nanette Nelms in partnership with the founding partners of the festival.
River To River is made possible with support from American Express, The Howard Hughes Corporation, Battery Park City Authority, Brookfield Place New York, Con Edison, Goldman Sachs, The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Alliance for Downtown New York, Westfield World Trade Center, New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and New York State Council on the Arts.
Presenting Partners: Battery Park City Parks, Brookfield Place New York, The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey, The Howard Hughes Corporation, Seaport District NYC (New York), Westfield World Trade Center
