Hauser & Wirth hosts the gallery’s first exhibition devoted to the work of Mike Kelley (1954 – 2012). Organised in collaboration with the Mike Kelley Foundation for the Arts, this presentation is the first in New York to focus exclusively on Kelley’s later series, Kandors. These visually opulent and technically ambitious installations rework the mythology of the popular American comic book hero, Superman, into an extraordinary opus of nurture and loss, destruction, mourning and the possibility of redemption. Until 24 October.
