New York is known as a cultural melting pot. So it makes sense that, on a prominent corner of Fifth Avenue, Japanese, Spanish, and American sensibilities coalesce. In the shadow of the iconic Flatiron Building, the National Historic Landmark designed in 1902 by Chicago architect Daniel Burnham, stands Link, ’s 13-foot-tall ode to and his public works. Serving as a focal point for residents and visitors, the Spaniard’s sculpture explores the relationship between scale and interaction and whether, he says, “the monumental can convey the feeling of lightness.” It’s installed at Flatiron Plaza North through November 6. But, over in Long Island City, runs through January 20, 2019.
