NileGuide Expert Says:
P.S. 1 makes the most of its eccentric space--exhibits are displayed in the basement boiler room, as well as some bathrooms, hallways and stairwells.

NileGuide Expert tip:
Admission to P.S. 1 is by donation only.
Located in a former public school in Long Island City, Queens, this spacious art center provides a production and exhibition space for a variety of artistic works. The center is now part of the Museum of Modern Art, though it retains its own identity. Exhibits here range from video and sound projects to painting, photography and sculpture, but everything has a bit of an edge. Artists whose work is featured in P.S. 1 range along the more experimental end of the spectrum; prominent past exhibitors include Jack Smith, Julian Schnabel and James Turrell.
