Washington Windows

80 WSE presents a new site-specific installation created especially for Washington Windows. In this installation, Lowman created walls in the exhibition space and destroyed them with hammers to reveal images recycled from magazines and newspapers. They depict young pop stars, celebrities, or even suicide bombers. On display for the youth of NYU's campus, Lowman displays young people for young people.  

Looking into a large window from the outside. There is a close-up film still of two girls from the movie Thirteen on the bottom right. Above this film still, the wall seems to be broken open to reveal an image of a girl's face surrounded by foliage. On the lower left hand corner, there is text that says "Nate Lowman, Stay in School."
