PHOTO & VIDEO CONTEST: ACE NYC PARTNERS WITH ANTONY GORMLEY: EVENT HORIZON: MARCH 26 - AUGUST 15, 2010
We’re honored to be working with internationally acclaimed English artist Antony Gormley and Mad Sq Art to help bring Gormley’s new sculpture exhibition, Event Horizon, to New York. Event Horizon comprises 31 of Gormley’s life-size sculptures of himself all over the place: at Madison Square Park – turned into an art gallery without walls by their art program Mad Sq Art – and on the Empire State Building, at Ace Hotel, and other locations around the Flatiron District. This is Gormley’s US public art debut and it is going to be one of this summer’s big deal cultural events for NYC. Learn more by visiting Event Horizon New York.
PHOTO & VIDEO CONTEST
Gormley says the Event Horizon installation will create ‘a relational field in which the passerby as well as the aware view is implied in a matrix of looking and being look at.’ Feel free to implicate yourself by submitting to our photo and video contest to celebrate the exhibition. Take pictures of the sculptures in their natural habitat and send them to us. We’ll post your entries weekly and announce winners in black & white, color, and video. Readers vote on entries, so if your entry wins we’ll give you something cool.
We also have a special package during the installation, since Ace is only a couple blocks from Madison Square Park and basically in the middle of the exhibit. Stay here and get a free upgrade (based on availability), the official Time Out/Event Horizon city guide, a
disposable camera that we’ll get developed for you and an official Event Horizon t-shirt. See more about the package, or book directly online.
Check back here weekly to vote for new entries and see our winners.
