James Ewing’s photographs of this summer’s Echo, the featured public exhibit of Madison Square Park Conservancy by Jaume Plensa, are up in our gallery space at Ace Hotel New York through August 2. Echo itself continues through September 11.
Today marks the launch of Madison Square Park Conservancy’s summer public exhibition with Spanish sculptor Jaume Plensa. Echo constitutes Plensa’s NYC public art debut — the 44’ sculpture represents everyday people in the form of the nine year-old daughter of a restauranteur near Plensa’s home in Barcelona, examining the intersection of the human form, language and communication and global citizenship.
You can take your lunch with this tranquil young lady every afternoon through August 14.
If you’re in New York anytime from now through February next year, make sure to visit Madison Square Park to see new media artist Jim Campbell’s Scattered Light. Our friends at Mad Sq Art, who brought you the Antony Gormley Event Horizon exhibition, are behind this magical work of……well, magic.
