View Website

In New York City, there are certain moments when current events cause us to come together as a community to share and express ourselves. This was demonstrated when Matthew "Levee" Chavez launched "Subway Therapy" at the 14th Street–Union Square station. Originally conceived as a one-on-one conversation between artist and subway riders, the project blossomed and changed forms when Chavez provided sticky notes for strangers to use to express their feelings about the presidential election of 2016. This interactive installation encouraged New York's commuters to share their thoughts freely, regardless of politics, creating dialogue and connection in one of the places familiar to all city dwellers: the subway Join us for an evening discussion with Matthew Chavez who will talk about his process and what he has learned by engaging with thousands of people around the world through a project that began in the New York City subway system.
