Bodys Isek Kingelez

May 26, 2018 - January 1, 2019

Bodys Isek Kingelez: City Dreams spans the Congolese artist’s full career, from his early single-building sculptures that take the shape of civic buildings, public monuments, and national pavilions, to spectacular sprawling cities and futuristic late works, which incorporate increasingly unorthodox materials. These rarely shown works are a call for us all to imagine, in the artist’s words, a “better, more peaceful world,” and will be on view from May 26, 2018, through January 1, 2019.

The exhibition features more than 30 of the artist’s “extreme maquettes,” as he called them, in which he transformed paper, commercial packaging, and other everyday materials into dazzling, intricate sculptures that suggest utopian possibilities for global urban sites.
