Goodbye My Love

Times Square Arts has brought a sculptural message of love to Anita’s Way- a fleet of Esterio Segura’s heart shaped airplanes. I once went to an amazing gala in this semi-covered walkway off Times Square, its a great place to duck out of the rain, and an unexpected above-ground tunnel that is enlivened with Segura’s art until May 14th.

Cuban artist Esterio Segura’s installation Goodbye My Love will be installed as part of Times Square Arts’ initiative to bring leading contemporary art to visitors of  Times Square. This installation is presented with the Cuban Artists Fund and chashama, and is supported by Rockefeller Brothers Fund.  Goodbye My Love, is a hanging outdoor installation of 12 planes made of heart-shaped bodies that reference the love found in contemporary relationships that often requires people to be separated from each other.

Artist Bio:?Esterio Segura is a cuban-born artist and  1994 graduate of the Instituto Superior de Arte in Havana. Working in painting, sculpture and installation, Segura makes use of humorous imagery to address socially and politically charged themes from Cuban history. He has held residencies in Banff Centre in Canada and Gasworks Gallery in London; shown in biennials in São Paulo, Lisbon and Havana, and has been exhibited extensively in Cuba, the United States, Germany, Spain, England, Argentina, Brazil, and elsewhere in the world.
