Aspen Art Museum


Chris Ofili: Night and Day

Jul 17, 2015-Oct 18, 2015
The first solo museum survey in the US of artist Chris Ofili encompasses five galleries over three levels of the Aspen Art Museum, showcasing his vibrant paintings, drawings, and a selection of sculptures. Organized by Massimiliano Gioni, Gary Carrion-Murayari, and Margot Norton at the New Museum, New York, the exhibition spans Ofili’s influential career from 1992 to the present. Juxtaposing figuration and abstraction, as well as the sacred and the profane, Ofili’s work examines the power of images and their ability to address fundamental questions of representation.

This exhibition was made possible by Mitzi and Warren Eisenberg, Susan and Leonard Feinstein, Lietta and Dakis Joannou, Beth Swofford, David Teiger, and an anonymous donor. Special thanks to David Zwirner, New York/London, and Victoria Miro, London.

The accompanying catalogue, published by Rizzoli, is made possible by the J. McSweeney and G. Mills Publications Fund at the New Museum.

AAM exhibitions are made possible by the Marx Exhibition Fund. General exhibition support is provided by the Toby Devan Lewis Visiting Artist Fund.

In Aspen, the exhibition is overseen by Heidi Zuckerman, Nancy and Bob Magoon CEO and Director. The presentation of the exhibition at the AAM is supported by Katie and Amnon Rodan, and funded in part by the AAM National Council. Additional exhibition support is provided by the Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, Devon Dikeou and Fernando Troya, and Liz and Eric Lefkofsky.
