18:05New Museum Presents “Chris Ofili: Night and Day”
|The New Museum will present the first major solo museum exhibition in the United States of artist Chris Ofili’s work. Occupying the Museum’s three main galleries, “Chris Ofili: Night and Day” will span the artist’s influential career, encompassing his paintings, drawings, and sculptures. Over the past two decades, Ofili has become identified with vibrant, meticulously executed, elaborate artworks that meld figuration, abstraction, and decoration. In his extremely diverse oeuvre, Ofili has taken imagery and inspiration from such disparate, history-spanning sources as the Bible, hip-hop music, Zimbabwean cave paintings, Blaxploitation films, and William Blake’s poems. As the title of the exhibition suggests, Ofili’s practice has undergone constant changes, moving from boldly expressive to deeply introspective across an experimental and prodigious body of work. The exhibition will feature over thirty of Ofili’s major paintings, a vast quantity of drawings, and a selection of sculptures from over the course of his twenty-year career.|
The exhibition is curated by Massimiliano Gioni, Artistic Director, Gary Carrion-Murayari, Kraus Family Curator, and Margot Norton, Assistant Curator. The exhibition will be on view in the Second, Third, and Fourth Floor galleries from October 29, 2014 to February 1, 2015.
