Movado Brings Centenarian Artist’s Work to the Public
The first major exhibition of sculptures from Cuban-born, 104-year-old Carmen Herrera is on display in New York’s City Hall Park through November.
New York—Movado Group Foundation is playing its part in bringing the large-scale sculptures of a 104-year-old artist in front of the public for the first time.
The foundation, a charitable organization sponsored by Movado Group, partnered with Public Art Fund to be the presenting sponsor for the first major exhibition of outdoor sculptures by Cuban-born, New York-based artist Carmen Herrera.
“Carmen Herrera: Estructuras Monumentales” is on display in New York City through November.
Born in Havana, Cuba in 1915, Herrera is known for her vibrant, abstract geometric paintings.
The artist began her Estructuras series—taking her painted forms and giving them a physical manifestation in large scale, three dimensional sculptures—during the 1960s.
The resulting aluminum structures feature strong lines and forms in monochromatic colors, with vivid shades that will complement the cityscape around them and, hopefully, evoke a sense of order and tranquility, the partnering organizations said in a press release.
The exhibition will liven up Manhattan’s City Hall Park with five works—three new sculptures based on historic designs and two sculptures that have never been seen in the U.S. before.
They range from 7 feet in height to over 12 feet in width.
“Estructuras Monumentales will bring Carmen Herrera’s bold sculptures to the public for the first time, providing this legendary artist with a long overdue opportunity to showcase her work in three dimensions,” said Public Art Fund Curator Daniel S. Palmer.
“Powerful yet meditative, Herrera’s monochromatic Estructuras will harmonize with the natural surroundings of this civic setting. City Hall Park serves as the ideal environment for this important exhibition in Herrera’s long career.”
Carmen Herrera: Estructuras Monumentales will be on view in Lower Manhattan’s City Hall Park through Nov. 8.
