About

While provocative and deliberately confrontational, the Chapman’s work is also deeply critical and challenges us to acknowledge what is uncomfortable and messy through irreverence and dark humour. Jake and Dinos’ varied and multidisciplinary practice grapples with a wide range of themes including morality, religion, sex, death, philosophical theory, the history of art and consumer culture.

Come and See is the first major exhibition in North America by Jake and Dinos Chapman.

The exhibition is organized in collaboration with the Serpentine Galleries, London.

Please note that the talk will be in English. Limited number of seats: first come, first seated.

Free admission
