TONY COKES AND OSCAR MURILLO
JUN 19 – AUG 25
545 W 30TH ST
NEW YORK, NY
This exhibition pairs new works by artists Tony Cokes and Oscar Murillo in one shared space. Cokes’s work, which places appropriated materials like pop music in a new, confrontational context, will explore the relationship between artist, studio, and urban development. Murillo, known for exploring the paradox of contemporary globalization—constant exchange, yet increasing displacement—will create new work referencing Diego Rivera’s famed, destroyed murals at Rockefeller Center. This exhibition, which is part of a wider series at The Shed exploring the relationship between art and the politics of space, will include a program of performances, talks, and events.
Organized by Emma Enderby, Senior Curator, with Adeze Wilford, Curatorial Assistant
