Installed on May 5th (Cinco de Mayo), El Toro de Oro adds to May’s plethora of art exhibition during Art Week, with the opening of the Whitney Biennial, TEFAF and NYCxDesign, followed by VOLTA, FRIEZE, and The Photography Show.
El Toro de Oro is the artist’s 8th bull in a series. However this is the only bull created for outdoors. The bronze sculpture sits atop a wooden, butcher-block type pedestal ~ an ode to the rich history of the district in which it is installed.
Enrique Cabrera’s El Toro de Oro can been found in front of the Gansevoort Hotel located at 18 ninth Avenue between Little West 12th Street and 13th Street, and will be on view through Labor Day, 2022. The installation is with support from the Mexican Consulate of New York.
