Head of a Sad Young Woman is a tightly cropped portrait of a woman positioned close to the camera. She is still and stares into the lens for the entire length of the videotape. Intensified by artist peter campus’ use of high-contrast black-and-white video, the woman conveys intense sadness as she seems to glower at the viewer. In this Midnight Moment iteration of Head of a Sad Young Woman, campus suggests a quiet power the woman has over viewers as her gaze towers over Times Square.

For the month of March, Head of a Sad Young Woman will play on Times Square's electronic billboards each night from 11:57pm to midnight.

Midnight Moment is the world’s largest, longest-running digital art exhibition, synchronized on electronic billboards throughout Times Square nightly from 11:57pm to midnight. Presented by the Times Square Advertising Coalition and curated by Times Square Arts since 2012, it has an estimated annual viewership of 2.5 million.
