Creative Time: Pledges of Allegiance (June 2017)
Creative Time, the New York based public arts non-profit, is committed to working with artists on the dialogues, debates and dreams of our time. Since 1974, Creative Time has produced over 350 groundbreaking public art projects that ignite the imagination, explore ideas that shape society, and engage millions of people around the globe.
On June 14th, Flag Day, Creative Time launches Pledges of Allegiance, a serialized commission of sixteen flags, each created by acclaimed artists: Tania Bruguera, Alex Da Corte, Jeremy Deller, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Ann Hamilton, Robert Longo, Josephine Meckseper, Marilyn Minter, Vik Muniz, Jayson Musson, Ahmet Ögüt, Yoko Ono, Trevor Paglen, Pedro Reyes, Rirkrit Tiravanija, and Nari Ward. Conceived in response to the current political climate, each flag points to an issue the artist is passionate about, a cause they believe is worth fighting for, and speaks to how we might move forward collectively. The project kicks-off with Marilyn Minter’s RESIST FLAG raised on the roof of Creative Time’s headquarters in New York City.

From June 21 - June 28, all the flags featured in the auction will be on display at Salon94, Freeman Alley, located at 1 Freeman Alley, New York, NY, 10002. The gallery is open Tuesday - Saturday, 11am - 6pm. Stop in to see them in person!
