Vik Muniz: 72nd Street's "Perfect Strangers"

Press Release

Vik Muniz’s new project “Perfect Strangers” coming soon!
As part of the completion of the new Second Avenue subway’s four stations 96th, 86th, 72nd and 63rd Streets, 4 artists have been chosen to treat the stations as their very own and make them into individual installations. Vik Muniz’s series “Perfect Strangers” can be seen at the 72nd Street station. The series consists of three dozen life-size portraits that seem to be waiting for a train along the concourse and entrances to the station. Portrayed are people familiar to the artist who play slightly off-kilter characters he cooked up. According to schedule, the new subway will be opened for New Year’s Day.
