DELIRIOUS: ART AT THE LIMITS OF REASON 1950-1985

The Met Breuer, NYC
September 13, 2017-January 14, 2018
945 Madison Avenue New York, NY 10021

The exhibit “Delirious”, has been derived from the delirium taking place in the art world at the time. Between 1950 and 1980 the world exploded in conflicts, whether it was military, social, or political. There are four parts to this exhibit, Vertigo, Excess, Nonsense, and Twisted. This exhibit displays the works of American, Latin American, and European artists like Nancy Grossman, Hélio Oiticica, Antonio Berni, Dara Birnbaum, Claes Oldenburg, to name a few, and their response to global chaos. This exhibit will be on display at The Met Breuer between September 13, 2017–January 14, 2018.

“The result of five years of research, much of it initially dedicated to the reception of Irish playwright Samuel Beckett among experimental artists, Delirious is a focused survey that reconstructs a historical phenomenon of great importance. It is the first exhibition to consider the fascination with irrationality in a holistic way and to ground it in contemporaneous social and political developments.” – Sheena Wagstaff, Leonard A. Lauder Chairman of the Department of Modern and Contemporary Art
