Shimon Attie has received a commission from a local New York City arts organization, MoreArt.org, to create a new site-specific artwork for New York City.
Attie will create a floating media Installation in the waterways around New York City. The Installation, titled Night Watch, will engage issues related to asylum seekers and refugees living in the greater New York area. Attie will collaborate directly with these communities to create the Installation. The new work is currently scheduled to be on view in the East and Hudson rivers in September 2018.
