MIKE KELLEY
Mar 31, 2014-Jul 28, 2014

MIKE KELLEY is the largest exhibition of the artist's work to-date and the first comprehensive survey since 1993. Widely regarded as one of the most influential artists of our time, Mike Kelley (1954-2012) created a protean body of deeply innovative work, which mined American popular culture, modernism and alternative traditions alike for purposes of a relentless, dark and delirious examination of self and society. This extensive overview brings together over 200 works from the mid-1970s until 2012 at the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA.
