On April 25, 2019 we were fortunate to attend the unveiling of Frieze Sculpture at Rockefeller Center wherein over 20 sculptures transformed this historic midtown location into a free public art park. Featuring works of art from 14 international and local artists the pieces can be found and seen outdoors as well as indoors.

Present on this day was Brett Littman, Curator of the installation, who was kind enough to share some words about Frieze Sculpture at Rockefeller. You can find a transcript of his remarks on this other New Yorkled magazine page here…

For yours truly, the most remarkable pieces of artwork came in the form of the huge 30 foot tall piece by artist Jaume Plensa titled: “Behind the Walls”. Found on Fifth avenue at the very entrance to Rockefeller Plaza it’s the sort of item that’ll stop you in your tracks.

Another item which caught our attention, but only after examining and reexamining it repeatedly are the jute sack flags titled: ‘White Cube’ by Ibrahim Mahama. It’s not entirely obvious considering how they’re in the form of flags replacing the usual international flags surrounding the spot where the ice rink is located. I’d unintentionally made a pun, by remarking to a fellow attendee, how they’re likely to fly over people’s heads.

This new addition to Rockefeller Center is surely worthy of a visit should you be in the area.
