Juan Muñoz: A Place Called Abroad

September 26, 1996–June 29, 1997, Dia Chelsea


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.
