21c Cincinnati is thrilled to welcome artist Chris Doyle for a special lecture during the opening of our newest exhibition Hybridity: The New Frontier. Doyle’s work will also be featured in the upcoming exhibition, but 21c Cincinnati isn’t the only venue for this lauded artist’s work. During the month of July, Doyle’s film Bright Canyon will show from 11:57pm to midnight on Times Square’s electronic billboards as a part of Midnight Moment. Midnight Moment is a monthly presentation of The Times Square Advertising Coalition (TSAC) and Times Square Arts. This July’s Midnight Moment series is presented in partnership with Andrew Edlin Gallery.
