SigSpace

SigSpace

SigSpace brings artistic programming to the Center’s public spaces and sustains our lobby as a free public workspace and social hub for New York City artists. In the Spring of 2020, after the pandemic hit, we pivoted to launch SigSpace virtually and re-imagine engagement with our community during this moment in history.

Spring and Summer 2021

Until it is safe and you are comfortable returning to the Center, we will continue to connect virtually and we have a slew of new and exciting SigSpace events to tease, curated by our resident playwrights: Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, Quiara Alegría Hudes, Samuel D. Hunter, The Mad Ones, Dominique Morisseau and Lynn Nottage.  Stay tuned!

Announcing SigSpace

 
 


In partnership with various artists and community organizations, SigSpace is a home for live performance and events like concerts featuring new music, works-in-progress, storytelling, panels, social justice conversations, self-care activities and other opportunities to gather. SigSpace also continues to sustain Signature’s lobby as a free public workspace and social hub for the NYC community. SigSpace launches with the generous support of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

“Since our lives are currently upended by isolation, we are eager to get a head start on SigSpace by re-imagining how to connect with our artists and audiences online. Until we can interact again in our beloved physical space, come interact with us in our virtual space – as we navigate this difficult moment in history together as a community. Once we can gather again in person, we’ll be thrilled for SigSpace to activate our lobby in unique ways for the Signature family, while also giving new artists and communities a home with us.”

– Paige Evans, Artistic Director
 

“In these times of social-distancing and isolation, SigSpace will help facilitate the Signature community both online and at The Pershing Square Signature Center. We’re thankful for to The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for their continued support and commitment to bringing audiences together physically and virtually.”

– Harold Wolpert, Executive Director
