Amar Bakshi, creator of the global public art initiative Portals, is not as interested in how America sees the world — mainstream media is doing enough work on this narrative — as he is in how the world sees America. This is the theme of his work as a reporter for the Washington Post, for which he traveled all over the world looking for these perspectives, and he has now brought the same intent through his public art project, which now has a new site in Times Square.
The TimesSquare_Portal is a project by Shared_Studios that will connect participants in the Big Apple with others in dozens of cities across the world. Other portals exist in diverse locations including refugee camps, art museums, and public plazas in locations such as Afghanistan, Kenya, Mexico, Spain, Vietnam, and more
