Travel With Chuubie – NYC: Continuous Access to Culture

The density of not just people but culture and access to information is what makes New York City arguably the greatest city in the world. With true internationalism, and it’s shores constantly receiving new information, influences, and inspirations, the city is constantly changing and growing- perhaps part of why many who visit talk about the indescribable energy of the city.

In this video, we document a somewhat typical evening for many in NYC. Typical because all of these events and coincidences of stumbling onto people and great cultural shows are all free and open to the public, so everyone has the chance to plug in.

Both high and street culture are captured in:
1. Bruce Nauman at Gagosian Uptown
2. Editta Sherman at CPW
3. Street run-ins and conversations
4. Yayoi Kusama at Whitney

5. Dinner and dessert in bustling K-Town
6. Public Art Music Installation in the 34th St Subway

In only a few hours, the wealth of information and historical references we come across is something that might take a month in another city.
