Coming Soon: The Event Horizon Exhibtion Catalogue

From March 26 – August 15, 2010, 31 life-size figures appeared on rooftops, setbacks, and sidewalks around Manhattan’s historic Madison Square Park.  Standing tall above the unique urban landscape of New York City, the figures were the work of celebrated British artist Antony Gormley as part of Event Horizon New York, Gormley’s long-awaited United States public art debut.

To celebrate and commemorate the success of this landmark public art project, the Madison Square Park Conservancy and Mad. Sq. Art are proud to announce the publication of the limited-edition Event Horizon exhibition catalogue.  Featuring a poignant original short story by Booker-prize nominated Irish novelist Colm Toibin as well as reflections on the Event Horizon experience from a wide array of New Yorkers, from art scholars to building superintendents, the Pentagram-designed catalogue includes over seventy stunning full-color photographs of Antony’s figures standing watch over the busy streets and iconic skyline of New York City.

This publication was made possible by the support of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.  The Event Horizon exhibition catalogue will be available from Tuesday, September 28.
