Patti Smith presents a public art installation in London’s Piccadilly Circus

Taking over the Piccadilly Lights advertising screen for two and half minutes every day at 20:21 GMT (8:21pm) from January 1 - 31 2021, Smith’s A New Year combines musical performance and poetry, transforming the 4k screen into a digital canvas. The presentation will feature two live pre-recorded events at midnight on New Year’s Eve and January 20, the date of the US presidential inauguration. The project is presented by Circa, a new platform presenting digital art in the public space established in 2020.
