AKADEMOS: Anthony Cragg | Things on the Mind
Sculptures, Drawings, Graphic Art

February 24 – June 13, 2011
MKM Museum Küppersmühle for Modern Art

The MKM is kicking off the year 2011 with a retrospective exhibition featuring Anthony Cragg. Entitled Things on the Mind, it brings together some 50 sculptures, in addition to drawings and graphic art by Cragg, selected from his key work-phases. Occupying an area of some 1000 sq.m., the exhibition furnishes an overview of the artist’s total oeuvre and juxtaposes his early works with his more recent output.

“For me myself, it’s very exciting “, explains Tony Cragg, “because there never has been an exhibition with works spanning almost 40 years.” The viewer experiences how Things on the Mind gradually takes shape and evolves, and how each artistic solution prepares the following one: “As soon as a sculpture is finished, I’m basically ready for the next, thinking of new paths to tread or new things I want to investigate or forms I have to try out.”
