Art, Tribeca

Rendering by Anish Kapoor.

Herzog & de Meuron’s striking “Jenga” condo tower at 56 Leonard Street in Tribeca is a conversation piece on its own, with its cantilevered rectangles of glass rising into the sky. The long-anticipated flourish that will anchor the skyscraper–artist Anish Kapoor’s reflective bean-shaped sculpture–is finally on the way, as evidenced by an intricate set of circles and arrows that just arrived on the building’s sidewalk. The spray-painted outline will inform installation of the sculpture, which resembles a similar public art icon in Chicago, where Kapoor’s “Cloud Gate” sculpture apparently attracts millions of tourists every year and has become an Instagram staple.

What’s taking so long, the anticipation is killing us

Art, Brooklyn Heights, DUMBO

Brooklyn Bridge Park is the last place we’d expect to find a menacing art installation summoning feelings of nothingness. But come May, Anish Kapoor will bring his acclaimed installation “Descension” to one of the park’s busiest stretches, Pier 1. As described by The NY Public Art Fund (the project’s curator), Descension is a 26-foot diameter whirlpool that funnels pitch-black, naturally dyed water below ground, inviting visitors to carefully peer into its swirling abyss.
