Alexandre da Cunha, Plaza (Arcade), 2017
Boston, Autumn 2017
Plaza (Arcade): a new monumental public sculpture by Alexandre da Cunha; commissioned by Samuels & Associates, and to be installed in a new public square in Fenway, Boston.
This will be da Cunha’s first permanent public project in the United States. It joins significant public projects by the artist in the United Kingdom and Brazil.
The work consists of three industrial concrete rings, reminiscent of ready-made, large-scale subterraneous, civic drainage pipes, placed around the public square. The rings resemble urban furniture, ancient celestial clocks or even mysterious astronomic measuring devices.
Plaza (Arcade), 2017 will be unveiled at a ceremony on 24th September 2017.
