Pop goes Rock.

Mike Kelley is one of the greatest art innovators and the fact that the Pompidou Centre gives him this summer retrospective really marks his importance in contemporary creation.

From his early drawings (a technique that he stopped and is one of his most celebrated formats) to the early experimentation with installations and his uncommon, strange and even sick, use of the pop culture (that rock bands like Sonic Youth fell for), the merciless anatomy of Kelley to the American dream splashes bits and pieces of his own personal history.

Get ready to ride because this exhibition (until the 5th of August), posthumous as Kelly died last year, is really going to be historic!

Until August 5th, 11 am – 9 pm
