The Walker Art Center in Minneapolis presents Claes Oldenburg: The Sixties, the largest exhibition of the artist’s ground-breaking works of the 1960s organized to date. This is the last venue of an international five-museum tour for the exhibition, which also included the Museum Moderner Kunst Stiftung, Ludwig Wien; the Museum Ludwig, Cologne; the Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao; and the Museum of Modern Art, New York. The retrospective features Oldenburg’s iconic early installations such as The Street and The Store, in addition to his original designs for colossal monuments for public spaces and the Mouse Museum—a miniature, walk-in museum in the form of a Geometric Mouse, filled with nearly 400 souvenirs, kitsch objects, and studio models.
On view September 22 – January 12.
