It’s that time of year again - artist Thomas Stevenson’s Bivouac New York is up and running. For the past few summers, Stevenson sets up a 5 day rooftop camp site with a few handcrafted tents at a secret location in Brooklyn or Manhattan for a few select campers.
Stevenson told the Village Voice last week, “I think New York City—and Michael Bloomberg’s going to kill me—is a playground. I look at space utilization in New York City and see how we’re all trapped indoors. There’s plenty of outdoor space, but it’s just not public. And then the question becomes, ‘what is public and what is private?’”
This year’s NYC session runs from July 12-16, and Stevenson is also holding sessions in Boston and London. Check the website for opportunities to sign up!
