thank you @vajrasarcadia and the entire @artnews team @tefaf_art_fair @thenewyorkedition @andrea_franchini @ericshiner for making the week memorable indeed! 👍👌🙏 ARTnews wrapped up the week with a panel at TEFAF featuring artists Joseph La Piana and Hank Willis Thomas with ARTnews senior editor Alex Greenberger, Fund for Park Avenue president Barbara McLaughlin, and, as the moderator, White Cube artistic director Eric Shiner. The discussion addressed challenges of creating public art, the many obstacles encountered in constructing it, and how outdoor pieces can engage with surrounding communities. ARTnews concluded the festivities with an intimate dinner hosted by Joseph La Piana, Eric Shiner and the Edition Hotel at Clock Tower.
Thank you @paddle8 My hope is that we explore the parallels between my sculptures and the current state of affairs. Tension is a powerful force: it is a souce of internal and external agonism that brings to the fore questions, real and metaphorical, about states of integrity in the face of growing dissonance and countervailing pressures placed on our collective identities.
Excited to announce that after almost 2 years of preparation . I am beginning the process of installing my #TensionSculptures through the #fundforparkavenue #fundforparkavenuesculpturecommittee and #nycparksdepartment along #parkavenue next Thursday and Friday in the wee hours of the evening. Thank you to all involved in making this happen. 🙏
My #tensionbetween exhibit last Tuesday night. Thank you all my dear friends and patrons for joining! Up until May19th
