Design
Where form meets function

The Metropolitan Transit Authority in New York City lowkey has some fire collaborations under its belt. Having previously collaborated with Supreme, the next limited-edition MetroCard is designed by conceptual artist Barbara Kruger.

Serving as part of Kruger’s site-specific work for the Performa Biennial, 50,000 MetroCards will be randomly distributed on November 1 at vending machines at four stations around the city.

The MetroCards will feature one of two designs, taken from Kruger’s 1991 work, “Untitled (Questions)” and “Whose Values?”, which featured on a 1992 Newsweek cover. Sets of pointed questions are printed on the back of the cards in the artist’s signature white-on-red Futura Bold Oblique.

Pick up your MetroCard at Broadway-Lafayette Street, East Broadway, Queensboro Plaza, or the B/C station at 116th Street.
