Gabo action on ART EXPO in Rotterdam

With the start of the art fairs Art Rotterdam, RAW EXPO and Re: Art Fair this week, Rotterdam is a vibrant art city with tens of thousands of visitors from home and abroad. The art fairs all opened yesterday and present enough art to fill several days with.

Sculpture International Rotterdam (24 hours of sculptures in public space) is present at the RAW EXPO (until 4 March 2012). SIR shows a presentation about the Naum Gabo and aims to find ‘friends´. The famous constructivist 26 meters high sculpture at the Coolsingel (in front of department store De Bijenkorf) is in serious need of repair. However, restoration is less easy to realize than would be desirable. SIR would like to – together with this group – examine ways to restore this work of Naum Gabo, one of his most famous sculptures.

On this pages you will find an impression of SIR’s presentation. Below, you will find the short film that was used in the presentation.
