The first major exhibition devoted to celebrated Chicago-born, LA–based sculptor Charles Ray since a midcareer retrospective in 1998, this display of 19 works fills the second floor of the Modern Wing and flows into the museum’s South Garden, presenting a full range of Ray’s most recent achievements with particular emphasis on figurative experiments. The show is co-organised by the Art Institute and the Kunstmuseum Basel.
