Jacob Hashimoto’s 'Never Comes Tomorrow' is a colorful, whimsical overhead outdoor installation adapted for Governors Island’s landmark Liggett Hall Archway.

 

The other installation, 'The Eclipse' is a monumental work of thousands of delicate rice paper kites, enveloping viewers in a tangible, yet ever-shifting fog. Originally installed at the Palazzo Flangini during the 57th Venice Biennale, the cloud-like work has been newly adapted for Governors Island’s St. Cornelius Chapel,

 

This is Hashimoto's first major public art exhibition in New York City. The exhibition is running through October 31, 2018.
