Mike Kelley – Eternity is a long time

HangarBicocca brings us Mike Kelley: Eternity is a Long Time, a fresh exhibition which covers the work of the late American artist Mike Kelley, in an open path facility, with video art and sculptures from his most recent works, which are considered representative of his imaginative, creative and visionary universe. Mike Kelley is one of the most influential figures in contemporary art, his work being an inspiration and a model to new artists around the world.

His memories are part of his art – so one of the main concepts behind this exhibition is the gathering of cultural aspects and autobiographical pieces that convey his relationship with education, modernist architecture, the tradition of painting, American literature and his approach to the popular cultural through vernacular language, youthful rites and music subcultures.

This exhibition comprehends two installations – Extracurricular Activity Projective Reconstruction #1 (A Domestic Scene) and Runway for Interactive DJ Event – showing a great turning point in Mike Kelley’s research and the beginning of his most prolific creative period. The exhibition runs from May 24th to September 8th, so anyone interested is still pretty much on schedule.

Another key installation is the John Glenn Memorial Detroit River Reclamation Project (Including the Local Culture Pictorial Guide, 1968-1972, Wayne/Westland Eagle) of 2001, which takes inspiration from a monument to the astronaut John Glenn, after whom the high school that Mike Kelley attended was named. The fragments of coloured ceramic and glass which cover the sculpture were picked up by Kelley himself in the river in Detroit. Sophisticated artistic techniques and typically vernacular processes, the monuments of tradition and anti-monumentality, personal and collective memory, and a media-based world of the imagination and pop culture all come together in this emblematic work.

This project is curated by Emi Fontana, an Italian curator who created a fantastic atmosphere for the exhibition and who worked with the artist during the last fifteen years of his life. From HangarBicocca, Andrea Lissoni helped devising the exhibition unusual format.
