Fergus McCaffrey | Ari Marcopoulos: “The Park”

January 7, 2019

In conjunction with Ari Marcopoulos’ inaugural exhibitions at Fergus McCaffrey’s Tokyo and New York locations, Fergus McCaffrey has partnered with Documentary Japan to produce a short film on Marcopoulos and his collaboration with jazz musician Jason Moran.

The exhibitions highlight the 58-minute film, “The Park”, in which Marcopoulos offers a poetic and absorptive look at the spontaneous interactions on a basketball court in Brooklyn, New York—a fundamental place of public social life in the neighborhood. Originally presented as a silent film, “The Park”, is accompanied by a recently recorded improvised soundtrack by Moran.
