EXHIBITION: Kiki Kogelnik Fly Me to the Moon

Until 18 October 2015
Free Entry

Fly Me to the Moon surveys the diverse practice of Kiki Kogelnik, focusing in particular on the works produced from her time in New York in the 1960s and 1970s.

Throughout her career, Kogelnik employed an exuberant palette, which belied its often apocalyptic subjects; from macabre skulls and severed limbs to disembowelled figures.
