Curated by Margot Norton, the show is exhibited in the New Museum’s recently inaugurated South Galleries. It brings together the comical videos, sculptures, and installations by Nathaniel Mellors (b. 1974, Doncaster, UK) who employs absurdist satire to incisively critique morality, national identity, religion, and power structures in contemporary society.
Nathaniel Mellors was born in 1974 in Doncaster, UK, and currently lives and works in Los Angeles and Amsterdam.
