For 25 years, the neo-Gothic Bank of Manhattan Building in Long Island City has remained empty. But now the 14-story architectural beauty will see new life with a site-specific art exhibit in the bank’s vaults and clock tower. Arts group No Longer Empty commissioned 26 artists to create work that speaks to the modern day iterations of currency, value, and exchange for the show, called “How Much Do I Owe You?”. The show will include large scale sculptures, immersive and participatory installations, film, sound, and more. It opens Wednesday, Dec. 12, and will be on view through March 13.
