Pushwagner: Coming to MK Gallery this June

17 May 2012

 

Today is Norway's biggest day of national celebration, as Norwegians commemorate the signing of the country's first constitution in 1814. We’re now only six weeks away from the launch of Norwegian artist Hariton Pushwagner’s visually stunning new exhibition Soft City, at MK Gallery from 28 June - 2 September 2012.

 

The exhibition will focus on his early works, including his defining creation, the graphic novel Soft City, an epic satire of capitalism and life in the modern metropolis. Other works include intricate and obsessively detailed paintings and visually stunning silkscreen prints, presenting a personal mythology of a world under perpetual siege from pollution, totalitarianism and mass destruction. 

 

The exhibition will be complemented by an exciting Norwegian season of events, including video, music and performances by Norwegian artists and curators.
