Fortress of Solitude / Mike Kelley


Looking at the play between memory and forgetfulness, Mike Kelley: Fortress of Solitude brings together a range of key works from across the artist’s career.

Whether using found stuffed animals as emotional effigies of long-lost traumatic memories or evoking the psychic existential homelessness of Superman in the form of his Kandor series, Mike Kelley explored the dark underbelly of post-war American culture.

Kelley has been described as “one of the most influential American artists of the past quarter century and a pungent commentator on American class, popular culture and youthful rebellion” (Holland Cotter, 2012).

This publication accompanies the exhibition that took place at the Museum of Cycladic Art in Athens, Greece, curated by Douglas Fogle
