ISA GENZKEN 'ROSE III'
On Occupy Wall Street’s Annivesary, Rose III a 26-foot-tall, half-ton sculpture by German artist Isa Genzken now ccupies the northwest corner of Zucotti Park. Rose III was purchased and loaned by Lonti Ebers.
“The Rose is both an homage to a city that Genzken knows and loves, and a strong statement for unity and equality that every passerby in this city of millions can enjoy,” said Laura Hoptman, executive director of the Drawing Center, in a statement. “It is simultaneously a reection of the empathy of the artist as well as the humanity of its spectators. Like all great art is.”
Stella's virtually relentless experimentation has made him a key gure in Americanmodernism, helping give rise to such developments as Minimalism, Post-Painterly Abstraction, and Color Field Painting.
