Jonathan Meese


Knight Exhibition Series

December 1, 2010 – February 13, 2011

The Museum of Contemporary Art presents the first major solo museum exhibition in the United States for German artist Jonathan Meese, renowned for his multi-faceted work, including wildly exuberant paintings that mix personal hieroglyphics and collage, installations, ecstatic performances, and a powerful body of sculptures in a variety of media. On view from December 1, 2010 – February 13, 2011, the exhibition Jonathan Meese: Sculpture focuses on Meese’s three-dimensional work, including his first ceramic talisman created when he was 15, small assemblages and dioramas from the beginning of his career that have never been shown before, massive bronze sculptures, recent large-scale ceramics, and models and set designs for theatrical and operatic productions.

Jonathan Meese: Sculpture is organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami and is curated by MOCA Executive Director and Chief Curator Bonnie Clearwater.

Jonathan Meese: Sculpture is part of MOCA’s Knight Exhibition Series.
