Art in Ad Places

Art in Ad Places is a 52-week campaign of replacing advertisements with artwork. Each week, we partner with a new artist to install their work at a payphone kiosk in New York City.

Molly participated by providing one of her works from the ‘Scenes from Aleppo’. The poster was installed in the closest pay phone to the offices of Syria’s ambassador to the United Nations.

Out of these abandoned buildings, leftists wove an archipelago of squats. These are homes, gathering places, community kitchens; some are decaying, others as sleekly artsy as any hipster bar. While most squats house Greeks, they are also an attractive option for refugees, thousands of whom now live in squatted buildings.
