Art uptown

Is Harlem the next hotspot for public art in New York? The uptown neighbourhood is due to host three prominent public installations in the coming months, including a group show by more than 20 artists, including Hank Willis Thomas and Nari Ward, installed in Sugar Hill, a low-income housing project designed by David Adjaye in one of Harlem’s historic districts. The non-profit developer behind Sugar Hill invited the arts organisation No Longer Empty to stage “If you build it” (25 June-10 August) in the building’s vacant apartments before residents arrive, to help introduce the $87m development to the community.
