Centre-fuge Cycle 17, June 2015

Centre-fuge is striking while the proverbial iron is hot. The acclaimed public art project released the roster for its eighteenth cycle this week, mere days after coordinating new murals on the fence at First Street Green.

Artists participating in Cycle 18 include Jet, Andy Golub, Below Key, Zero Productivity, Leon Rainbow, Rez Shoalin and a collaboration between Key Detail& Yu-Baba. Work begins on the mid-block trailer this weekend, and should be complete by October 12. It’ll remain on view through early January.

On that note, co-founder Jonathan Neville tells us that Centre-fuge is basically extended into the forseeable future. “The time, or should we say years, left for the trailer is unclear, but it doesn’t sound like it is moving any time soon,” he says. Makes sense given the snail’s pace nature of the Second Avenue Subway project to which it’s inextricably linked. So, painting until the offices are gone. Quite a feat for the upstart art project, which began life on East First Street nearly four years ago.
