Steve McQueen - Sunshine State Pirelli HangarBicocca
For Pirelli HangarBicocca, Steve McQueen has conceived a site-specific exhibition project that unfolds in the Navate and Cubo spaces and on the building's exterior. Through a non-chronological layout, the exhibition features a survey of McQueen’s career in the visual arts, highlighting the evolution of his practice over the last two decades. Taken together, the works presented here form a visual narrative, revealing the artist’s radical take on reality and offering an opportunity to imagine new readings of McQueen’s poetics.
The title of the exhibition evokes the artist’s new video installation, Sunshine State (2022), commissioned and produced by the International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR) 2022, which is shown here in its world premiere.
