Adrian ghenie: Pie-fights and pathos


September 21, 2012–January 13, 2013

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.

Curated by Nora Burnett Abrams, Adrian Ghenie: Pie-Fights and Pathos will be presented in the David & Laura Merage Foundation Photography Gallery from September 21, 2012, through January 13, 2013. The opening celebration will be held on Friday, September 21, 6–8PM members preview, 8–10PM public opening.

This exhibition is sponsored in part by Javier & Colleen Baz, MCA Denver’s Director’s Vision Society members and the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. MCA Denver also thanks the citizens of the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District.
