Limited Edition Barbara Kruger-Designed MetroCards Are Coming to New York City

Available at only four subway stations.

By //Design

Despite announcing its New York City MetroCards will soon be phased out, the Metropolitan Transit Authority recently unveiled its plans to release two limited edition Barbara Kruger-designed MetroCards. Fifty thousand cards are set to be released and will serve as commemorative items for Kruger’s series of site-specific works for the Performa Biennial. The two cards designed by Kruger are emblazoned with pointed questions from the prolific artist’s 1991 work, Untitled (Questions) and Whose Values? — which featured on a 1992 Newsweek cover — expressed in her signature white-on-red Futura Bold Oblique. The Barbara Kruger-designed New York City MetroCards are set to be randomly distributed November 1 at vending machines at Queensboro Plaza, Broadway-Lafayette Street, East Broadway, and the B/C station at 116th Street.

For more contemporary art news, Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama is set to bring her Infinity Mirror Rooms installation to New York.
