|For the first time in its history, MoMA PS1 devotes the entire building to a single artist, Mike Kelley (1954–2012), who produced a body of deeply innovative work mining American popular culture with themes as diverse as class relations, sexuality, religion, and post-punk politics. Opening October 13, Mike Kelley is the largest exhibition of the artist's work to date and the first comprehensive survey since 1993 of this influential artist.|
For the opening, Los Angeles–based choreographer Anita Pace restages her 1989 collaboration with Kelley, titled Pansy Metal/Clovered Hoof. Live programs highlighting the importance of critical reflection, performance, and music in Kelley's oeuvre will continue throughout the exhibition.
