Raúl de Nieves: Eternal Return and The Obsidian Heart

TAGS: Exhibit Museum Contemporary Art Museum
Fri 10/16/2020 - Sun 3/21/2021

“Raúl de Nieves: Eternal Return and The Obsidian Heart” is the most comprehensive survey to date of work by artist Raúl de Nieves Coordinated by independent curator Risa Puleo, the exhibition reconnects de Nieves’ exuberant material sensibility to his roots in punk music and performance, devotional ritual, and celebratory queerness. As its title suggests, “Eternal Return and The Obsidian Heart” takes the artist’s investigation of different concepts of time and spiritual and emotional growth as its subject. Metaphors of time manifest across the exhibition, in works such as “When I Look into Your Eyes I See the Sun” (2018), the working, life-sized carousel that will occupy MOCA’s exhibition space. Circling endlessly in a performance of fantasy and delirium, the carousel suggests the cosmic time of the eternal return and the planetary time of the Earth’s orbit around the sun.

TimeWednesday 12 p.m. – 7 p.m. and Thursday – Sunday from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
