“…her work accumulates with an insistent force and momentum that will keep you alert…”
—The New York Times
Discover the radically inventive work of Isa Genzken in her first major U.S. retrospective, featuring nearly 150 objects and spanning more than 40 years. From monolithic concrete sculptures to assemblage works with spray-painted parts and blinking lights to astronaut suits floating above the galleries, Genzken’s art is curious, bold, and spectacularly unconventional.
Watch a MoMA-produced video featuring artists and friends—including Daniel Buchholz, Liam Gillick, Dan Graham, Elizabeth Peyton, Wolfgang Tillmans, and Lawrence Weiner—discussing Genzken and her work.
