Juan Muñoz: A Place Called Abroad
September 26, 1996 - June 29, 1997
Spanish artist Juan Muñoz has transformed the 7,500 square foot gallery into a street-like environment. The residual spaces are inhabited by groups of sculptural figures who engage with each other in ways that transform the sites into highly charged arenas.
Born in Madrid in 1953, Juan Muñoz had his first one-person show in 1984. In addition to exhibiting widely in Europe and elsewhere since then, he has also devised a number of radio programs and published several books containing both his own texts and found material which he has modified or edited.
