Carmen Herrera: Estructuras Monumentales at City Hall Park, New York

New York | 11 July–8 November

T he Public Art Fund is staging the first major exhibition of outdoor sculptures by the Cuban-American artist Carmen Herrera, who is 104 years old and still working. Well-known for her colorful, geometric paintings, Herrera will present five monumental outdoor sculptures in City Hall Park, New York.

Herrera first conceptualised her paintings as three-dimensional forms in the late 1960s, but only a few of her designs were ever sculpted into reality. Now, the exhibition Estructuras Monumentales will include three newly realised sculptures based on the artist’s historic designs and two sculptures never-before-seen in the U.S., including Angulo Rojo. The five Estructuras are to be sited throughout the park, inviting the public to reflect on their bold colors, geometric presence and the tranquil, balanced relationship they hold with the vibrant nature of their surrounding environment.

Carmen Herrera: Estructuras Monumentales will be on view at City Hall Park, Manhattan from 11 July–8 November.
