Public Art Fund is pleased to present Life in the Abstract, an exhibition of new large-scale sculptures by artist Wyatt Kahn. It will bring seven vibrant rust red Cor-Ten steel artworks to City Hall Park for Khan’s first exhibition in public space. Kahn has adapted forms previously explored in his canvas wall works, combining elements of geometric abstraction with playful “readymade” objects from everyday life like a comb and a phone. Juxtapositions such as glasses resting on abstract shapes and a foot about to crush a lightbulb produce playful narrative compositions. These new works expand the lineage of modernist public sculpture, while the significance of each artwork takes on personal meaning and resonance for the viewer. Life in the Abstract is the New York City-based artist’s first public art exhibition and will be on view from June 8 through December 11, 2022 at City Hall Park in Lower Manhattan.
