Deborah Kass | OY/YO Returns to Brooklyn
Douglaston Development and NYC Parks are pleased to announce the return of the monumental sculpture OY/YO by Deborah Kass along the Williamsburg waterfront situated at the North 5th Street Pier and Park. First presented in Brooklyn Bridge Park in December 2015, the sculpture will open starting July 11 and remain on view in Williamsburg through July of next year.
Walking the line between respectful homage and brazen appropriation, Brooklyn-based artist Deborah Kass mimics and reworks the signature styles of iconic 20th century, often with a feminist twist. OY/YO is sourced from urban and Brooklyn slang, the statement “I am” in Spanish, and the popular Yiddish expression.
