Duration: 90 minutes
This walk holds 8 people and is presented in partnership with Residency Unlimited and Le Petit Versailles, a program of Allied Productions. “Moss Me” will be held in English, but Tomaz also speaks Portuguese and Spanish.
In “Moss Me,” Tomaz Hipolito presents participants with a recipe for a green intervention amidst Manhattan’s dense urban landscape. Drawing from Tomaz’ background in architecture and current practice in visual art, the group will identify and evaluate abandoned objects to paint and use a homemade mixture of moss paint to coat the objects. Individually and in groups, participants will paint these objects, re-engaging the street’s detritus.
