This week at MAM-Rio

(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)


Solo exhibition by Ron Mueck
20th March – 1st June 2014 | curated by Hervé Chandès and Grazia Quaroni

Ron Mueck inscribes himself in the sculpture tradition of representing the human figure, although his themes, materials and techniques make them an original author, innovative and contemporary. His sculptures stand out for the changes in scale and character realism, whose subtle gestures express situations filled with mystery and life.
