Art in Focus

Jan 14May 4Rockefeller CenterFree and open to the public

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

Current Installation:

HIBA SCHAHBAZ

January 14th – May 4th

Schahbaz’s installation incorporates self-portraiture, art history, mythology, and autobiography. Schahbaz’s site-specific installation presents mythological garden scenes, utilizing natural motifs such as gardenscapes, animals, and birds along with female figures inspired by her personal mythology. The artist’s intention is to create a healing space within the City that is both beautiful and transformative. The scale of this project allowed Schahbaz to present the full scope of her various painting styles.

Influenced by traditional Indo-Persian miniature paintings, small, detailed scenes of imaginary gardens and landscapes will be presented at Rockefeller Plaza . Much of the work presented is figurative, with each image presenting the artist’s individual personal narrative while simultaneously reflecting upon a collective experience of women. Throughout this exhibition, Schahbaz explores themes of beauty, healing, emotional journey, and spirituality within one’s surroundings.

Upcoming 2021 Artist Installations:

Following Schahbaz are New York-based interdisciplinary artist SANFORD BIGGERS, visual artist HILARY PECIS, floral artist and founder of the studio Bloom & Plume MAURICE HARRIS,and renowned illustrator and author LISA CONGDON who will show her vibrant graphic drawings across the campus and create the annual Rockefeller Center holiday map.
