“Into Me/Out of Me”

22-25 Jackson Avenue at 46th Avenue
June 25–September 25, 2006

Curated by Klaus Biesenbach

There’s nothing metaphoric about the title of this exhibition: Museum of Modern Art and P.S. 1 curator Klaus Biesenbach has marshaled a group of more than one hundred paintings, sculptures, videos, multimedia works, and installations (some large-scale) from the past six decades on the theme of corporeal entering and exiting, from metabolism (nourishment and excretion) and reproduction (intercourse to birth) to violence (shooting and—ouch!—impaling). Marina Abramovic, Matthew Barney, Mona Hatoum, Paul McCarthy, and Rirkrit Tiravanija, among many others, probe the probing of the human body in ways both routine and experimental. Save lunch for after the show.

Travels to Kunst-Werke Berlin. Nov. 25–TBA.
