|Difficult to pin down, John Currin’s ambiguous works are as compelling as they are frustrating. His detached yet somewhat-sympathetic individual portrayals as well as his unsettling scenarios foster a psychological investigation of representation and desire. This survey, which will tour in the US and Europe, comprises 40 paintings from 1991 to the present and will be Currin’s first one-person museum exhibition in the United States. This exhibition is co-organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, and the Serpentine Gallery, London.
