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.

Photography’s Narrative on the American West
The American West is symbolic, from cowboys to canyons. Into the Sunset explores photography’s ephemeral qualities from the 1850s to the present.
A new exhibition opens in New York at the International Center of Photography that interrogates what it means to work in analogue and digital photography today.
