Antony Gormley: Event Horizon

Antony Gormley: <EM>Event Horizon,</EM> New York
Antony Gormley: Event Horizon, New York
Antony Gormley: Event Horizon
NEW YORK  •  Madison Square Park  •  Ongoing

In Event Horizon, thirty-one life-size body forms of the artist cast in iron and fiberglass inhabit the pathways and sidewalks of historic Madison Square Park as well as the rooftops of the many architectural treasures that populate New York’s Flatiron District. Event Horizon marks Gormley’s United States public art debut.

Antony Gormley originally created Event Horizon for London’s Hayward Gallery as part of the Blind Light exhibition in 2007. The sculptures were installed on bridges, rooftops and streets along the South Bank of London’s Thames River. In this New York incarnation,  Gormley has adapted this project to Manhattan’s skyline.
