inHarlem: Kori Newkirk – St. Nicholas Park

inharlem_exhibit_-_artist_-_kori_newkirk_-_st__nick_parkFor inHarlem: Kori Newkirk, the artist transforms one of the iconic sets of steps in St. Nicholas Park into the site of a ceremonial procession. Sentra frames the steps rising from St. Nicholas Avenue with reflective fringe curtains. Formally similar to the artist’s well-known beaded curtains, and reflecting a landscape reminiscent of the pastoral imagery they sometimes depict, the dazzling canopy is visible to, and welcomes, passersby on St. Nicholas Avenue. Public sculpture is a new direction for Newkirk, though his diverse practice frequently incorporates unusual or found materials, often those associated with urban black life.
