> DESCRIPTION

Curator Dominic Molon leads a free tour of Liam Gillick: Three perspectives and a short scenario at the MCA. It is the British artist’s most comprehensive and significant exhibition in an American museum to date. Gillick’s sophisticated body of work ranges from his signature “platform” sculptures to wall paintings, text sculptures, and print texts that reflect the increasing gap between utopian idealism and the actualities of the world. Three perspectives and a short scenario includes a major site-specific installation in the gallery ceiling as well as a presentation of his design and published works, and a film documenting projects from the entirety of his career.
