Since the 1990s, British artists Jake and Dinos Chapman have explored the underbelly of humanity through sculpture, painting, film, music and literature. This new exhibition organized in collaboration with Serpentine Galleries in London invites us to behold their horrific, irreverent and humorous takes on consumer culture, morality and art history. Never-before-seen older works and new pieces including recent iterations of the dark and intricately detailed ‘Hell’ dioramas will be brought together for Come and See. This presentation at DHC/ART marks Jake and Dinos Chapman’s first major solo exhibition in North America.
Jake & Dinos Chapman: Come and See is organized in collaboration with the Serpentine Galleries, London.
Jake & Dinos Chapman —
After earning degrees from the Royal College of Art in London, the Chapman brothers garnered critical acclaim with their 1991 diorama entitled Disasters of War, created out of remodelled plastic figurines representing Goya’s engravings of the same name. They were nominated for the Turner prize in 2003 and their works have been shown in the world’s most famous museums including the Tate Britain (2007), Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg (2012), and the Pinchuk Art Center, Kiev (2013).
