Rubem Robierb, Dream Machine: Dandara

November 4, 2019 to August 8, 2020
Tribeca Park, Manhattan

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

Brazilian artist Rubem Robierb has become internationally for his uplifting sculptures of oversized, stylized wings. Designed for public interaction, Dream Machine: Dandara has a space between the two 10-foot high, pearl white fiberglass wings for viewers to place themselves. Robierb’s Dream Machine sculptures are named after someone forgotten or famous who lived or died fighting for their own dreams, or for the dreams of others. This sculpture, the newest in this series, is named Dandara in memory of a transgender woman who was brutally attacked and murdered in Brazil in 2017. Dream Machine: Dandara is dedicated to the transgender/gender non-conforming community. 

This exhibition is presented by Taglialatella Galleries.
