13. Descension by Anish Kapoor at Brooklyn Bridge Park
As part of the 40th anniversary celebration of the Public Art Fund, the London-based artist, Anish Kapoor, will install his exhibit entitled, Descension, at Pier 1, Brooklyn Bridge Park. Kapoor’s interest in the sculptural potential of water led to the creation of this site-specific installation, which measures 26 feet in diameter. The liquid mass converges in the center – creating a mesmerizing, continuous water spiral, funneling into a black hole. The installation, Descension, has traveled the globe, however this is the first time it will be seen in North America.
Associated with this installation will be Spring 2017 Talks at The New School on May 3rd. Descension, which is also part of this years NYCxDesign, will be on view from May 3 to September 10, 2017 at Brooklyn Bridge Park, Pier 1.
