about portal: where new york city meets dublin, ireland

Portal was founded by Lithuanian artist and entrepreneur Benediktas Gylys as an invitation to interact and foster human connection around the world. This one-of-a-kind interactive, global art installation gives people the opportunity to experience New York City and Dublin, Ireland in real-time.

Portal will make its North American debut on the Flatiron South Plaza, next to the famed Flatiron Building at the dynamic intersection of Broadway, Fifth Avenue, and 23rd Street. In Dublin, Portal will be installed facing the capital’s main street, O’Connell Street and will capture the iconic vista of both Dublin’s famous GPO building and the Spire together.

Portal will be connected between New York City and Dublin, Ireland for 6 months, from spring 2024 through the fall of the same year. Flatiron NoMad Partnership will host public programming surrounding Portal, including an event to celebrate the NYCxDESIGN Festival this May.
