FAST TRASH

Thursday, April 22, 2010 to Sunday, May 23, 2010
Opening Reception: Thursday, April 22, 6-9pm

What if we radically changed the way we move garbage through the city? Fast Trash explores this question through the lens of a novel approach to garbage collection that has served Roosevelt Island since 1975. Part infrastructure portrait, part urban history, the exhibition draws on archival materials, original maps, photographs, drawings, diagrams and video interviews to bring an invisible system to the surface, and asks what a community built around progressive policies and technologies can teach us about how we choose our infrastructure.
