Pie-fights and pathos
MCA Denver is pleased to present the first U.S. solo exhibition of the work of Romanian painter Adrian Ghenie. Ghenie’s work – which draws from Old Masters’ paintings, the history of cinema and political extremism – dwells on the dark underside of modernism. His paintings highlight forgotten episodes of history, shifting between abstraction and figuration. Like a memory, his work moves between fact and fiction, blurring the boundaries between the two. For this exhibition, Ghenie will present a new series of works alongside examples of earlier projects, offering a comprehensive review of this emerging artist’s oeuvre, much of which has never been shown in this country.
