Mike Kelley
A solo exhibition for the American artist Mike Kelley. Born in 1954 to a working-class family in the Detroit suburbs, from his student days Kelley used a variety of materials in works that earned him a reputation as a “spokesman for American popular culture and youth culture.” This exhibition includes his series ‘Extracurricular Activity Projective Reconstruction,’ comprising 365 films and installations, and a major work “Day is Done.” In the model “Educational Complex” based on schools Kelley attended, he channels individual and societal traumas through strange figures that appear in typical events like Halloween and school plays.
