Hailed by The New York Times as “one of the most celebrated performance artists anywhere,” Ragnar Kjartansson comes to the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden with an unprecedented solo exhibition—the first U.S. survey of this internationally acclaimed artist. Spellbinding, poignant, and frequently humorous, Kjartansson’s work is at the cutting edge of performance art. Bringing together live endurance theater, large-scale projection, popular music, photography, painting, and drawing, this exhibition will introduce American audiences to the collected output of one of today’s most exciting and evolving artists. This exhibition features Kjartansson’s most celebrated works, including many never before seen in the US.
