Join us to celebrate Words Like Love: Alphaville, First Scenes, a temporary public art project by Alejandro Cesarco.

Words Like Love: Alphaville, First Scenes is installed on a 14-by-48-foot billboard over Jackson Avenue at the intersection of Queens Plaza in Long Island City through July 2, 2017. The work is a textual interpretation of the opening scene of filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard's Alphaville (1965), an iconic science fiction/noir film that describes a futuristic dystopian society controlled by a supercomputer.

Cesarco's project is the second artwork commissioned through Public Process, SculptureCenter's art education program.

The reception will be hosted at SculptureCenter. In-kind support for the event is provided by Stella Artois.
