ICA Miami: 8 July to 30 October 2016
ICA Miami presents Susan Te Kahurangi King’s debut museum exhibition.
Curated by Tina Kukielski, independent curator and Executive Director of ART21, the solo exhibition includes approximately 60 works, many of which are on view for the first time. The exhibition surveys the various periods of King’s work: from her foundational childhood drawings, to her mature works of the 1970s and 1980s. Also featured are drawings since 2008, which followed the twenty-year dormant period.
The exhibition will be complemented by a screening of “Pictures of Susan”, a 2012 documentary by Dan Salmon, on the 21st of July. Also, King will lead a “Shut Up and Draw” event on the 8th of September 2016 at 7pm.
A selection of photographs from opening night of the exhibition can be viewed here.
The exhibition is organized by Tina Kukielski, independent curator and Executive Director of Art21. A monographic catalogue published by Lucia Marquand will feature essays by Tina Kukielski and Gary Panter, an interview with Chris Byrne and Petita Cole, as well as a contribution by artist Amy Sillman. Foreword by Alex Gartenfeld.
