Wall Street's Charging Bull artist says Fearless Girl statue violates his rights
Apr 13, 2017, 01:37
The artist's 11-foot "Charging Bull" statue now stands, with the blessing of the city of NY (which allowed the statue to stay after much public support), in the city's financial district, steps away from Wall Street.
Arturo Di Modica is challenging city officials who are allowing the bronze girl to stay until February.
The statue was created by artist Kristen Visbal, who was commissioned by a NY advertising firm and a Boston investment bank, as a pointed message to corporate America about the lack of women in their boardrooms. The Charging Bull was dumped by the artist in front of the the New York Stock Exchange without a permit, following the 1987 stock market crash.
Arturo Di Modica holds a model of his Charging Bull sculpture during a news conference Wednesday, April 12, 2017, in NY.
In any case, Di Modica isn't happy about the pint-size challenger to his original work. "Our goal with Fearless Girl was to create a powerful symbol to stand as a reminder to corporations across the globe that having more women in leadership positions contributes to overall performance and strengthens our economy".
"What this girl represents is the present, but also the future", Tisdalle told the Times.
The installation was supposed to come down after a few weeks, but the little girl was so popular, thousands of people signed a petition to keep her on Wall Street.
"She is inspiring everyone at a moment when we need inspiration", adding that the artwork "means so much to the people of NY".
Siegel said they want the girl sculpture moved and for Di Modica to be awarded damages for the violation of his legal, statutory rights.
But for a month it has been overshadowed, at least in part by the bronze "Fearless Girl" crafted by U.S. artist Kristen Visbal and installed in March, hands on hips and chin jutting out, directly challenging the bull. Authorities originally removed the work, but later reinstalled it after public outcry made clear that New Yorkers wanted the bull to stay.
"The girl has changed the meaning of the bull forever", said David Levi Strauss from the Manhattan School of Visual Arts.
Siegel said he has filed Freedom of Information requests about the permitting process with various city offices.
