June 12th - September 2nd
Rockefeller Center and Art Production Fund will continue their Art in Focus partnership with the presentation of work by Brooklyn-based artist EMILY MULLIN throughout the Rockefeller Center campus, beginning June 12, 2022 through September 2.
Internationally recognized for her installations that bring together ceramics, photography, abstraction, vibrant color, and live floral elements, Mullin references the tradition of still life painting while exploring the relationship between flat image, object, and real space. At Rockefeller Center, Mullin will exhibit both still-life photography of her ceramic vessels and live floral installations, along with the physical vessels on display.
The monumental still-life photographs of Mullin's vibrant work are presented in the vinyl mural spaces (located at 10 Rockefeller Plaza, 30 Rockefeller Plaza, 50 Rockefeller Plaza, the street and concourse levels of 45 Rockefeller Plaza, Top of the Rock, and Radio Park). Produced in collaboration with her partner, Tony Mullin, the use of color in the work is an ode to the artist's childhood growing up in Los Angeles in the '90s.
Mullin's mixed-media installations in the vitrine spaces (located in the lobby of 45 Rockefeller Plaza) hold a series of exquisite ceramic vessels. With an emphasis on structure and form, the artist's tableaux will be framed by the ornate Art Deco architecture in Rockefeller Center. The artist’s use of abstract sculptural forms holding the vessels acts as a reference to the practice of Modernist artists who flattened images in space.
Summer Sunday: Art Sundae with Emily Mullin
On Sunday July 17th Emily Mullin will be hosting an arts and crafts project for the whole family! To reflect Mullin's mixed-media installations, which are currently on display throuout the Rockefeller Center campus, kids will be fabricating large forms (similar to her vitrine spaces) through a clay making workshop lead by Mullin herself. Each child will make their own vase using air dry clay, with the option of incorporating the vases into a window display at Rockefeller Center.
