ENRICO DAVID: GRADATIONS OF SLOW RELEASE

This fall, the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago presents Italian-born, London-based Enrico David, who has distinguished himself as one of the most original and fascinating artists working today.

Using a wide range of media, David's imagery revolves around the human figure and its many states of being, creating an encyclopaedic yet extremely personal accounting for the human form, from fragile and vulnerable to grotesque, tortured, and ecstatic. Named after his sculpture of the same name, Gradations of Slow Release characterizes the circular process of his work where imagery and ideas slowly morph and evolve over time into different but related forms. Exploring the connections between privacy, introspection, interiority, and disembodiment, this survey traces David's work over almost 20 years starting with Untitled (1999). Organized by MCA Chief Curator Michael Darling, Enrico David: Gradations of Slow Release runs from September 29, 2018 - March 10, 2019 at the MCA and from April 2 - September 19, 2019 at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden.
