From Modern grid-bound architecture to voyeuristic impressions of apartment dwellers to massive men and women girded in office attire to the subway underworld, the photographs of “New York Temporary” reveal an ever-changing panorama of New York life. From extremes of wealth and poverty to nuanced interactions between people and spaces, New York City reveals her most basic character beyond the skyline.

Curators Liam Davis and H.P. Garcia bring together a diverse group of artists who document and interpret the city and her many moods, impressions and expressions, to create a portrait that unfolds in glimpses. They speak of the city in our time from myriad angles and vantage points, reflecting intensity, callousness at times, and an unending propensity for transformation.
