Sanford Biggers: Oracle
May 5, 2021 - June 29, 2021
Rockefeller Center:
45 Rockefeller Plaza,
New York, NY 10111

The multidisciplinary artist debuts his largest-scale work to date: a 25-foot bronze sculpture, commissioned by Art Production Fund, that presides over Rockefeller Center’s Fifth Avenue entrance. It’s a continuation of his recent Chimera series of figurative monuments created by combining African masks and European figures that explore historical depictions of the body and their subsequent myths, narratives, perceptions, and powers. Smaller-scale works by Biggers, including flags that feature distinct wave illustrations, mini-Chimeras in building vitrines, and mixed media murals made directly from pre-1900 antique quilts will also appear throughout the campus.
