10. The Public Art Fund Presents David Shrigley: MEMORIAL at The Doris C. Freedman Plaza
The artist David Shrigley plays on the historical significance of our granite public monuments in a comedic tone by honoring the mundane act of making a grocery list. You will find this 17 foot high by 7 feet wide single-slab, granite list installation installed at The Doris C. Freedman Plaza, the new exhibit from the The Public Art Fund. David Shrigley: MEMORIAL will be on view beginning September 7th at 9am at Fifth Avenue at 60th Street.
The artist will be also speaking at The New School, as part of the Fall 2016 Talks Series, Mining the Minutiae, which brings David Shrigley together with Heather and Ivan Morison, and Spencer Finch, whose practices also mine the minutiae of collective experiences. Mr. Shrigley’s work focuses on the public realm and include “Really Good,” a ten-foot bronze sculpture which will be installed this fall in London’s Trafalgar Square; a design for Kingsley, the official mascot for a Scottish Premiership football team (2015); and “How Are You Feeling?”, The High Line’s billboard commission (2012). Spencer Finch also had the longest running public art work on the High Line and will be unleash a mini redwood forest in downtown Brooklyn October 1st.
