Tue, Nov 10, 6pm - Sat, Nov 14, 2015 8pm

Add to Calendar

Tyler Paige presents a sound-based reconstruction of Times Square through a character study of the Shapeshifter.

If you’re here because you are questioning your right to expect something of the workplace, if you’re here because your expectations of stability feel ungrounded, if you question what essential quality about yourself is valuable, then you’re in the right place. Because think about it: is this the new you?

Opening Reception on Tuesday 10 November, 6-8pm

Exhibition on view November 10 - 14, 11am - 6pm

1st Floor Colonnade, The Foundation Building, 7 East 7th Street, NYC

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
