Mazeredo, Dialogue

November 30, 2015 to May 1, 2016
Dag Hammarskjold Plaza, Manhattan

Please note: This is a past exhibit that is no longer installed in the park.


Babel, Butterfly, Dialogue, and Communication, four sculptures by Brazilian artist Mazeredo are on view in Dag Hammarskjold Plaza. She translates the sounds she hears in Brazil into vibrant colors and shapes that make up her sculptures. One of her most ubiquitous shapes is the abstracted mouth form. For example, Babel depicts mouths arguing as they ascend the tower to discuss the harmony of human dialogue to solve differences.

This exhibition is presented by the Friends of Dag Hammarskjold.
