Ace Hotel in New York are about to work with English artist Antony Gormley, alongside Madison Square Art, to bring Gormley’s new sculpture exhibition, Event Horizon, to New York City starting from March 26th 2010. Event Horizon comprises 31 of Gormley’s life-size sculptures of himself all over the city: at Madison Square Park, Empire State Building and other locations around the Flatiron District. This is Gormley’s US public art debut and it is said to be one of this summer’s biggest deal in cultural events for New York City. The event will run through to August 15th 2010.
To celebrate with artist Antony Gormley, Ace Hotel are having a photo and video contest where you can take pictures of the sculptures in their natural habitat and send them to Ace Hotel who will post your entries up weekly on their blog and announce winners, who are voted by by their their readers, in black & white, color, and video.
