install view of Derek Fordjour's Mosaic "Parade" Artwork

Night Gallery congraulates Derek Fordjour on the installation of Parade, a series of mosaics permanently installed on the walls of 145th St. Station in Harlem, New York, commissioned by MTA Arts & Design. The works were translated from paintings into glass and ceramic mosaics by Miotto Mosaics. As MTA Arts & Design state, "Line majors, dancers, and drummers joyfully parade along the platforms, accompanied by crowds of people and flags. The Harlem-based artist's richly textured paintings of the legacy of parades through Harlem [...] provide commuters a chance to encounter a celebration of the comunity, history, and identity in the colorful art that complements the station's improvements and reinforces the historic fabric of the station."
