Where do we begin? With the ball dropping over Times Square every New Year’s Eve or opening night on Broadway? The Rangers, Knicks, Yankees, Mets, Giants and Jets. Toy fairs, marathons and a giant Snoopy floating high above the cheering crowds of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade.
Positioned at the intersection of culture and commerce, if it’s happening in NYC, it’s happening just moments from The London NYC.
British artist Cornelia Parker has been selected as the fourth artist to present her installation at the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden. Past installments have been courtesy of Imran Qureshi, Dan Graham with Günther Vogt, and Pierre Huyghe. Parker is known for her large-scale, thought-provoking and sometimes dark works, which will be backdropped by the roof garden's spectacular views of Central Park and the Midtown Manhattan skyline this summer.
