Mike Kelley’s Retrospective at Moca Los Angeles

Mike KelleyWidely regarded as one of the most influential artists of our time, (1954–2012) produced a body of deeply innovative work mining American popular culture and both modernist and alternative traditions—which he set in relation to relentless self and social examinations, both dark and delirious.

His retrospective at Moca in Los Angeles, goes through his large use of medium—drawings on paper, sculpture, performance, music, video, photography, and painting—exploring themes as diverse as American class relations, sexuality, repressed memory, systems of religion and transcendence, and post-punk politics, to which he brought both incisive critique and abundant, self-deprecating humor.

More Love Hours Than Can Ever Be Repaid and The Wages Of Sin, 1987 is the title of one of his most famous pieces

The work Kelley produced throughout his life was marked by his extraordinary powers of critical reflection as well as a creative—and surprising—repurposing of ideas and materials.
