Art in Focus

Nov 22Dec 31Rockefeller CenterFree and open to the public

Rockefeller Center, in partnership with Art Production Fund, presents a series of public art pop-ups throughout the Center. Taking place in unique and unexpected locations, the multidisciplinary program showcases installations inspired by the New York City landscape and contemporary life.

Current Installation:

HUGO MCCLOUD

April 11th - June 12th

McCloud is a multidisciplinary artist and creator who is known for experimenting with non-traditional materials and developing a unique art-making technique. His newest body of work incorporates figurative vocabulary with an innovative process of layering plastic to create visually rich paintings. Plastic, an everyday material that is difficult to decompose, finds new life in these paintings and encourages a discussion around sustainability. McCloud continues his practice of incorporating industrial materials as a tool to better understand our similarities and differences as a human race, connection to our environment, and commitment to reversing the negative impact of our carbon footprint.

In 45 Rockefeller Plaza, visitors will find McCloud’s most monumental work to date, The Burden of Man: Waiting to Breathe displayed on the Rink Level. This is the first time that this significant artwork (produced by McCloud using single-use plastic bags during the Covid-19 pandemic) will be exhibited in the United States. This work interweaves narratives, referencing recent international crises to address themes of migration, borders, hope, and loss; conditions internationally endemic during the Covid-19 crisis.
