Ugo Rondinone’s Human Nature Transforms Rockefeller Center

April 24th, 2013

Screen shot 2013-04-24 at 3.09.44 PMFor seven weeks this spring, Ugo Rondinone’s Human Nature transforms Rockefeller Center Plaza between 49th and 50th Streets. As if transported from another time, the nine colossal stone figures that comprise the work range in height from 16 to 20 feet and weigh up to 30,000 pounds each. Their immovable legs become gates through which visitors may pass, experiencing the rough surfaces of these primal forms.

To share your photos of the exhibition, submit to our User Uploaded Gallery  or tag them #UgoNYC on the web.

Join us on May 8 for Public Art Fund Talks at The New School when Rondinone will present the first public lecture on his work in New York City. For more information and to purchase tickets click here.

On display at Rockefeller Center through June 7, 2013.
