After Hours is a series of ephemeral installations and performances hidden amongst the Times Square district’s diverse venues, recorded for radio and video dissemination.

Taking advantage of the twilight moment before midnight, and a surreal array of different settings nestled throughout the Times Square area, the Times Square Alliance and Clocktower come together to offer tantalizing glimpses of these spaces as creative catalysts.  Pairing  musicians and artists with each of these unique contexts, the artists create work specifically designed to draw on the neighborhood's history as a social and artistic melting pot. The fleeting nature of these late night experiences highlights the power found in taking the synchronicity and spontaneity of an After Hours encounter beneath the bright lights, and using it to inspire and indicate future audio, video, and performance work.

Curated by Clocktower in partnership with Times Square Arts. Curatorial Committee:  Alanna Heiss,  Joe Ahearn, Beatrice Johnson, Jim Toth. Clocktower Radio Livestream and Broadcast: David Weinstein and Jeannie Hopper.


Rooftop Music Series

After Hours returned in July with a summer music series featuring performances by an electic mix of musical acts in the district's unique rooftop venues.

About Clocktower Productions

Clocktower is an art production institution working in the visual arts, performance, music, and radio. Founded in 1972 in Lower Manhattan by Alanna Heiss, Clocktower is the oldest alternative art project in New York. For 40 years, the institution has produced seminal exhibitions and performances by some of the most important artists of our time. After leaving its historic Tribeca tower in December 2013, Clocktower immediately engaged in contracted program partnerships with six cultural institutions in three boroughs. Clocktower produces multidisciplinary art projects all over the city through these creative collaborations with Pioneer Works in Red Hook, Knockdown Center in Queens, Playland Motel & Gallery in Far Rockaway, and Times Square Arts, Neuehouse, and Red Bull Studios in Manhattan. These spaces host Clocktower exhibitions, performances, residencies, radio, and administrative activities. Visit Clocktower.org for more information. Follow @Clocktower_NYC.
