Erizku’s free virtual conversation on May 10th accompanied New Visions for Iris, the artist’s most ambitious exhibition to date. He was joined by Public Art Fund Curator Daniel S. Palmer and Kingdawud Burgess, one of the subjects of three of the photographs in the exhibition. For his first solo public show, Erizku created a new body of 13 photographs which are on view on 350 JCDecaux bus shelters across New York City’s five boroughs and throughout Chicago through June 20. New Visions for Iris marks Public Art Fund’s first simultaneous presentation in New York and Chicago.
