MIKE KELLEY AT POMPIDOU CENTRE
The first French retrospective devoted to the work of the subversive American artist Mike Kelley opens today at the Centre Pompidou. Born in Detroit in 1954, Kelley died from an apparent suicide in January 2012, leaving behind a complex, protean and disturbing oeuvre, drawing upon both high culture and popular culture. After a first stop at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, this exceptional retrospective, designed in collaboration with the Mike Kelley Foundation for Arts, will next be presented at New York’s PS1 and the Los Angeles MoCA.
