Pirelli HangarBicocca hosts the first solo show in Italy by Miroslaw Balka. Titled ‘CROSSOVER/S’, the exhibition presents a selection of some of the artist’s main projects and sculptures to date.
Miroslaw Balka’s eariest works focused on the human figure, represented through commonly used materials such as wood, ash and soap. In the 1990s, Balka then abandoned anthropomorphic sculpture in favour of forms – such as beds, platforms and fountains – that allude to human presence but without ever representing it.
Tuesday and Wednesday: 11am–4pm
Thursday and Friday: 10am–11pm
Saturday and Sunday: 10am–12am
