Antony Gormley at Philadelphia Museum of Art


24 January - 16 June 2019

Perched high on the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s Rocky steps, ten cast-iron ”blockwork” sculptures by Antony Gormley bring art outside, releasing it into the city’s shared space. In these metal bodies, each over ten feet tall, Gormley has replaced anatomy with the language of architecture, using cantilevers, propping, and pier-and-lintel construction, the interplay of masses creating the balance of form and feeling.

These are sculptures, not statues—less heroic or idealized, more material and real. ‘STAND’ offers an opportunity to reflect on our status as urban animals, our common ground with the artworks, and how context influences our thinking.
