Hurray, it’s April! And with it comes many exciting events happening worldwide. Check them out:
Exhibition: CryptoFuturist and The New Tribal Labyrinth by Atelier Van Lieshout, at Pioneer Works
An immersive installation of sculptures and reused industrial machines, this exhibition is Atelier Van Lieshout’s largest-scale work to date. It will be showing at one of New York’s most inspiring spaces – Pioneer Works. The title of the exhibition combines two of AVL’s works: the first is CryptoFuturist, a series that refers to 20th century Italian Futurist artists, and their glorification of technologies, power and war. The second is New Tribal Labyrinth, which has become known for its humorous and delightful representations of humans and nature. This show is also the artist’s first retrospective and will include never-before-seen works on paper.
When and where: Until April 14, 2019, Pioneer Works, Brooklyn, NYC
