Both meditative and provocative, To Each Era Its Art. To Art, Its Freedom is a new experiential sculptural work created for Boston by Mexican artist Jose Dávila in response to our times and to a uniquely arboreal space in Downtown Boston. Composed of 21 custom-made concrete shapes that are variations of a standard cube with river boulders balancing on top, To Each Era Its Art. To Art, Its Freedom., creates a dynamic field of vibrant red-colored geometric forms with natural juxtapositions that punctuate and accentuate Central Wharf Park. The work, which intentionally invites the public to sit, rest, and play on and among the sculptural shapes, explores publicness in a time of social and physical distancing and encourages passers-by and visitors to decide for themselves the function and purpose of the installation. By offering ideas on new modes of construction and innovative placemaking possibilities, this project aims to demonstrate ways art can shift centers of creative power into the public realm.
