Description

Artist Talk: Friday, June 3 from 7 to 8 p.m.

This site-specific installation continues an innovative multiyear initiative to animate the outdoor space by engaging visitors in an interactive art experience. Jaime Hayon’s four large-scale wooden sculptures whimsically interpret the familiar shapes of animals or objects, such as a pig or a bell, in ways that inspire playfulness and joy. Each structure features a colorful pattern, ranging from polka dots to stripes, and sets of stairs and slides with openings specifically sized for children that encourage guests to interact with the sculptures. Transforming the piazza into an outdoor art gallery, playground and summer refuge, the sculptures create an atmosphere for socializing and recreation. “Tiovivo” will also become the stage for performances, art-making activities and special events co-organized with local partner institutions.
