Jean-Marie Appriou at Central Park, E 59th St

From September 11, 2019 to August 30, 2020, thanks to Public Art Fund, newyorkers and tourists will be able to admire Jean-Marie Appriou's new sculptures The Horses in Doris C. Freedman Plaza in Central Park. This will be the first institutional exhibition of the young French sculptor in New York.

Inspired by the site and its numerous equine references – including the traditional gilded bronze equestrian monument to William Tecumseh Sherman by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, and the horses who pull tourists through the park in hansom cabs – the exhibition will feature three new whimsical large-scale sculptures of horses cast in aluminum. Appriou is known for his intuitive approach to sculpture and experimental use of cast aluminum, where unexpected details emerge. The Horses exemplifies Appriou’s expressive style and will invite the public into an imaginative world where figuration and mythology meet.

 

Jean-Marie Appriou: The Horses is curated by Public Art Fund Curator Daniel S. Palmer.
