You know Louisville's "David", but do you know how he got here?
Conceptual artist Serkan Özkaya originally made "David (inspired by Michelangelo)", for the 9th International Istanbul Biennial in 2005. In 2011, 21c commissioned the 30-foot-tall sculpture’s journey from Istanbul to Louisville, traveling by ship over the Atlantic in 2012, and then stopping first in the entry port of New York City. In New York, "David" rode on a flatbed trailer through the streets of Manhattan before parking overnight at @storefrontNYC, where we hosted a panel discussion on the use of doubling in art.
