Kader Attia is probably my favorite living artist, so I’m thrilled to see him showing in the US again. In this exhibition, Attia, Tim Rollins & K.O.S., and Mickalene Thomas are positioned in dialogue through the medium of collage. All three raise questions about dominant art historical narratives and play with semiotics, so collage is a pretty natural medium, though I’ve never seen any of Attia’s collage work (at least of the 2-D variety). It’s not that often that we get to see his work at all—he mostly shows in Europe and the Middle East—so prioritize this show!
