Period & Style
Jordan Wolfson tells more about his fascination for animatronic creations in his first solo presentation in the Stedelijk Museum. Director Beatrix Ruf and curator Martijn Nieuwenhuyzen tell more about Wolfsons work and the exhibition.
This autumn, the Stedelijk Museum will present Jordan Wolfson (New York, 1980), one of the most outspoken representatives of a new generation of artists who explore the increasing digitalization of society and other technological developments.
The solo show is conceived as a diptych and will occupy the upper galleries of the Stedelijk. Part one is on view from November 27 to January 29, and the second chapter opens on February 18, 2017. Both presentations revolve around Wolfson’s spectacular animatronic creations: robotic human figures, seductive yet repulsive, which interact with the viewer using motion sensor technology. The exhibition also includes video works and digital paintings. This is Wolfson’s first solo presentation in the Netherlands.
