The Underbelly Project Takes Artists Beneath NYC

NEXT IN SERIES

The tunnels in New York’s century-old subway system stretch throughout the city like veins beneath the skin. In fact there are so many forgotten parts of the subterranean city that some people live in them.

The Underbelly Project started  in 2009 when some artists found a long-forgotten and unfinished station and decided to make it an underground gallery and creative space. For a year they made clandestine trips to the station to work, the final result was exhibition of contemporary that would literally never see the light of day until excavated. They did manage to capture some of the process on time-lapse video and the result is the above clip featured on the MOCAtv YouTube channel. Watch it above and check The Underbelly Project’s site.
