NEW YORK I Reception and tour of Josiah McElheny's Prismatic Park at Madison Square Park

Date(s): June 28, 2017

Time: 6:30 PM  EST - 7:30 PM  EST

Madison Square Park, 11 Madison Ave, New York, NY 10010


Join ArtTable for a simple reception and tour with ArtTable member Brooke Kamin Rapaport, Director and Martin Friedman Senior Curator and artist Josiah McElheny of Prismatic Park, McElheny's new outdoor commission on view at Madison Square Park.

Dancers Rashaun Mitchell and Silas Riener will be in residence that evening in the Park.

Madison Square Park Conservancy is proud to announce its thirty-fourth exhibition, Prismatic Park by artist and MacArthur Foundation Fellow recipient Josiah McElheny. The project features three large sculptures of painted wood and prismatic glass on view in Madison Square Park from June 13,
2017 through October 8, 2017.

The outdoor exhibition will comprise three exquisite sculptures in painted wood and prismatic glass: minimal, almost architectural forms that will create new spaces within the Park for the creation of music, dance, and poetry: a curvilinear, translucent blue sound wall for experimental music; a circular, reflective green floor for vanguard dance; and a vaulted-roofed luminous red and yellow pavilion for poetry. Each will refract the surrounding natural light, beckoning the passerby and regular Park visitor. The three structures will form open, stage-like platforms—in both the physical and metaphorical sense—for the collaborating choreographers, dancers, musicians, and poets who will be working next to them, on them, and under them in the summer of 2017.

Thanks to Brooke Kamin Rapaport, Director and Martin Friedman Senior Curator and artist Josiah McElheny for participating in this program
