David Byrne Bike Racks

David Byrne designed this as one of a range of nine bike racks for the New York City Department. She’s supposed to represent the neighbourhood in which she was installed.

This was originally a temporary art work. It’s one of nine David Byrne bike racks and they’re now on permanent loan to the city but we can’t help but think this lady looks a little familiar to our logo… : )

This sexy silhouette is The Olde Times Square but we definitely know our second favourite too. Check out The Ladies’ Mile which is situated in front of Bergdorf Goodman’s:

David Byrne has been an avid cyclist for 30 years and has now released a book on the subject, Bicycle Diaries.

Each of the David Byrne bike racks was designed to represent the neighbourhood it was in. They are scattered between Manhattan and Brooklyn, see what each area inspired:

Join the art debate with In Defence of “Bad” Burlesque.

Burlexe is a sensational London burlesque show inspired by the women who created the genre and perform the art. It fuses burlesque performance with storytelling, dancing with acting.

We look to burlesque’s influence on the world and if David Byrne bike racks, with one in the shape of a naked woman isn’t a source then what is?

Join us for the Burlexe show by booking your ticket.
