Spread over the four levels of Frank Gehry’s building, the exhibition covers the painter’s whole career, from 1980 to 1988, focusing on 120 defining works. The exhibition also includes works previously unseen in Europe.
For Dieter Buchhart, “The exhibition follows his work, from the first drawings and monumental works to the later prints, collages and assemblages, shedding light on his inimitable touch, use of words, phrases and enumerations, and his recourse to concrete hip hop poetry. To the image of the African American man threatened by racism, exclusion, oppression and capitalism, he opposed warriors and heroes.”.
The exhibition is presented chronologically.
