Mike Kelley‘s retrospective is on show at MoMA PS1 beginning October 13 and ending February 2. The exhibition will be the largest of Kelley’s work to-date and will occupy the entire museum, the first to do so in 25 years.
“Mike Kelley” will showcase 200 of the artist’s work from the 1970s up until 2012 when he took his own life at the age of 57.
In a rare move, MoMA PS1 has devoted its entire space—from its boiler room to the classrooms above—to “Mike Kelley,” which runs through Feb. 2. The 250 pieces in the exhibit arguably represent some of his best.
The exhibition is curated by Ann Goldstein, Director, Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; in cooperation with the Mike Kelley Foundation for the Arts; and organized at MoMA PS1 by Connie Butler, formerly The Robert Lehman Foundation Chief Curator of Drawings at The Museum of Modern Art, now Chief Curator, Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; and Peter Eleey, Curator and Associate Director of Exhibitions and Programs, MoMA PS1. Curator of the first exhibition concept is Dr. Eva Meyer-Hermann.
