Solo Exhibition – Sanford Biggers ‘Oracle’ and ‘Art in Focus’ at Rockefeller Center

May 5 - June 29

SANFORD BIGGERS

May 5th – June 29th

Multiple disciplinary artist Sanford Biggers will transform Rockefeller Center with several public art exhibitions, including the highly anticipated monumental Oracle sculpture. Several years in the making, Biggers is the first artist invited by Rockefeller Center for a multimedia survey exhibition campus-wide. The 25-foot tall bronze sculpture titled Oracle, commissioned by Art Production Fund for installation at the Fifth Avenue entrance to the Channel Gardens is the cornerstone of Biggers’ takeover and welcomes visitors to the installation.

Oracle is a continuation of Biggers’ recent Chimera sculptures, a series of figurative sculptures created by combining African masks and European figures that explore historical depictions of the body and their subsequent myths, narratives, perceptions, and power. This sculpture will be the artist’s largest-scale commission to date.

The presentation of Oracle at Rockefeller Center is made possible with generous support from Tishman Speyer and Marianne Boesky Gallery with additional support from Sarah Arison and Aby and Samantha Rosen.
