Antony Gormley: Life Beyond the Fourth Plinth

antony gormley, domain field, garage center for contemporary culture

Like Antony Gormley? The contemporary artist who asked volunteers to set up their own “piece of artwork” on the top of Trafalgar Square’s Fourth Plinth? (see my write ups here and here.) Well, he’s got a new exhibit at Moscow’s Garage (get ready for some Cyrillic) right now called “Domain Field”. The works on display are of the human form. Cool stuff.

On Gormley’s website, he lists all of the places where he has his work on display publicly. BRAVO to the public works people at the below cities for recognizing the value of exhibiting art. Look where you can find Gormley’s art on your way to the metro/home/school/park/grocery store:
