Denver-based artist John McEnroe presents a new, site-specific work for the Fries Family Atrium as well as an exhibition of sculpture and other works to be presented in the Mary Caulkins & Karl Kister Gallery and the Joseph Crescenti Family Gallery.
To create the sculpture, which will fill the Fries Family Atrium, McEnroe manipulates a polymer to resemble monumental drips of paint. Sheer and light, this large-scale installation will include stalactite forms that course through the open spaces of the museum. The installation will be complemented by other sculptural works in the Mary Caulkins and Karl Kister Gallery and the Joseph Crescenti Family Gallery.
The Museum of Contemporary Art Denver presents new exhibitions by artists Guillermo Kuitca, Tatiana Blass, John McEnroe and Gaspar Libedinsky in conjunction with the 2013 Biennial of the Americas, an international festival of art, culture and ideas.
These exhibitions are sponsored in part by the MCA Denver Director’s Vision Society, the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the Colorado Creative Industries. MCA Denver also thanks the citizens of the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District.
