Curator Jody Graf hosts a tour of Life Between Buildings, an exhibition exploring how artists have engaged the city’s interstitial spaces—“vacant” lots, sidewalk cracks, traffic islands, and parks, among others—to consider the politics of public space through an ecological lens. Bringing together select archival materials and artworks from the 1970s through the present day, the exhibition looks beyond a history of artists transforming buildings (such as MoMA PS1) to how they have engaged the spaces in between, turning negative spaces into sites for common life: gardens, installations, performances, and gatherings.
For visitors unable to join the tour, the museum's digital guide offers interviews with artists and gardeners featured in the exhibition through Bloomberg Connects, the free arts and culture app, which features digital guides to over 100 museums, galleries, sculpture parks, gardens, and cultural spaces from around the world in one easy to use app.

How does the combination of financial, cultural, and community capital enrich quality of life? The "Building Capital: Value of Place" series showcases places that play a vital role fostering community connections and local culture, telling the story of how the space was designed, built, and financed, how it’s being used, and how they contribute to the financial security and well-being of residents. Building Capital is the latest installment of OHNY’s Urban Systems program and is presented in partnership with Bloomberg Connects
