Hung Yi’ Fancy Animal Carnival
September 20, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
Emmanuel Fremin Gallery New York and InSian Gallery Taipei are delighted to present Hung Yi’s Fancy Animal Carnival exhibition in collaboration with NYC’s Garment District Alliance.
One of Taiwan’s most acclaimed contemporary artists, Hung Yi (洪易), is bringing his fantastical and cheerful sculptures to New York City in a Fall/Winter exhibition. Fancy Animal Carnival will be on view in the Garment District Pedestrian Plazas starting September 20th. Eight large-scale, vibrantly-colored animals, will be installed along Broadway, from the iconic Herald Square Macy’s to 42nd Street, Times Square.
Each of the animal sculptures represents a narrative, expressed through traditional Taiwanese symbols and motifs believed to bring luck. The painted patterns reflects on folk culture and religion, as well as the artist’s personal experiences and observations of people’s everyday lives.
Join us for a celebration with the artist on Tuesday, September 20th at 11am. RSVP at email@example.com
