BHARTI KHER'S ANCESTOR AT DORIS C. FREEDMAN PLAZA, CENTRAL PARK

BHARTI KHER'S ANCESTOR AT DORIS C. FREEDMAN PLAZA, CENTRAL PARK

Bharti Kher’s impressive new sculpture, Ancestor, is exactly the kind of monument we need in the 21st century. It is a deeply personal expression of hybridity and global identity that invites a dialogue about the importance of honouring our ancestors and fostering cultural exchange. - Daniel S. Palmer, Public Art Fund Adjunct Curator

I invite viewers to leave their wishes, dreams, and prayers with Ancestor; and to pass on their wisdom of living and love to the next generation. She is the keeper of all memories and time. A vessel for you to travel into the future, a guide to search and honor our past histories, and a companion–right here, right now–in New York City. - Bharti Kher

Bharti Kher: Ancestor is on view from September 8, 2022 through August 27, 2023 at Doris C. Freedman Plaza, Central Park. To learn more about the exhibition, visit the Public Art Fund website.
