The Midnight Moment in January brought to you by the Times Square Advertising Coalition (TSAC) and Times Square Arts,will have artist Pipilotti Rist showcase her exhibition entitled Open My Glade (Flatten) to the square.

The video exhibition will take over the screens of Times Square every night from 11:57 p.m. until midnight and will feature a video of Rist flattening her face against the television screen in an attempt to “break through” the glass. The humorous mini-flick has her smearing her makeup against the glass, but the video’s intentions are bigger than just laughs.

“At a time when the larger political currents are making many women feel both the glass ceiling and the walls closing in on their bodies, this work resonates more than ever,” said Times Square Alliance president Tim Tompkins. Rist seeks to challenge the expectations the people have of women in media while questioning the “individual boundaries placed on women and their history, experiences, pains and wishes in ways that resonate just as much in 2017 as they did in 2000,” says the official press release.

Open my Glade (Flatten) will be broadcast every night from January 1st through January 31st.
