Enrico David: Gradations of Slow Release - Hirshhorn Museum

Featuring twenty years of artistic output, "Enrico David: Gradations of Slow Release" is the largest US museum survey of the artist’s works to date. Organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, and curated by Michael Darling, the James W. Alsdorf Chief Curator, MCA Chicago, this exhibition shows the breadth and versatility of a distinguished artist, one whose practice is characterized by transformation. Based in London, Enrico David (Italian, b. Ancona, 1966) employs a variety of media—including sculpture, painting, installation, and works on paper—to develop a dynamic and unique vision of the human form and the ever-shifting sense of being that rests therein. Often fragile, vulnerable, grotesque, and mutable, David’s imagery achieves a universal expression of the human experience, albeit through a deeply personal formulation.
