Starting today, Rockefeller Center will be transformed into a free public sculpture park for the second iteration of Frieze Sculpture at Rockefeller Center, a large-scale public art installation presented by Frieze New York and Tishman Speyer. There are site-specific works from international artists including Ghada Amer, Beatriz Cortez, Andy Goldsworthy, Lena Henke, Camille Henrot, and Thaddeus Mosley.
This year’s Frieze Sculpture Park is inspired by the site at Rockefeller Center and the city’s natural materials of earth, rock, and plants, and by the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, the original date when Frieze Sculpture at Rockefeller Center was scheduled to debut.
