Working in mediums such as poetry, sculpture, painting, artist’s books, printmaking, and film, Marcel Broodthaers was able to reveal the function of art in society with his work. For the first time, an exhibition of his work will come to New York, at The MoMA from February 14 to March 15 2016. Showcasing the trajectory of his work, the pieces at the exhibition will be pulled from many points in his life to highlight how he has influenced artists of today.
