Taglialatella Galleries is proud to present Peace Makers, an exhibition celebrating the stunning new sculpture series by Brazilian-American artist Rubem Robierb. Inspired by the increased call for social justice and activism across America and around the world, Robierb worked tirelessly through 2020 and into 2021 on Peace Makers in attempt to create a modern monument that would visually embody and symbolize the ubiquitous hope for equality.
“Art reflects our times, and my art reflects the desire and hope of our society for peace and justice.” ~ Rubem Robierb
Drawing on the previous impact of his first monumental sculpture “Dream Machine”, Robierb revisited his goal to achieve a spectacular object of scale that would engage its audience to interact both emotionally and thoughtfully. In order to bring Peace Makers to the public forefront, Robierb will display his 10-foot painted fiberglass and stainless-steel sculpture on New York City’s Randall’s Island Park, set to be unveiled on May 4th, 2021. The sculpture will be on public view
for an entire year – until May 2022 – at the base of the Park’s 103rd Street Footbridge. Peace Makers will be exhibited along with Robierb’s Dream Machine II as part of NYC Parks’ Art in the Parks program in partnership with the Randall’s Island Park Alliance and Taglialatella Galleries NY.
In conjunction with the public unveiling, Taglialatella Galleries will unveil table-top limited editions versions of both Peace Makers and Dream Machine at our flagship location in Chelsea, NY. The exhibition will open on May 6th, with a public reception from 5 - 8 pm in the gallery’s dedicated second-floor exhibition space at 229 10th Avenue, New York, NY. Visitors are required to wear masks and capacity limitations in accordance with New York City regulations will be enforced.
