The John Golding Artistic Trust are delighted to announce a large-scale retrospective opening on 9 May 2024 at the Museum of Modern Art (MAM) in Mexico City.
John Golding: from Mexico to London will be the first-ever major retrospective of Golding’s work and will take place at the Museum of Modern Art in Mexico City. The exhibition will convey the remarkable story of the artist’s path to abstraction and will bring together a wide range of his most definitive works as well as some of his smaller, enlightening exercises in experimentation to reveal his unique approach to abstraction and support his conviction that true aesthetic experience derives from intent looking.
Golding had solo exhibitions in the late 1950s and early 1960s at galleries in Mexico City, and his work was included in group displays in both Peru and New York. These shows positioned Golding among prominent Mexican artists and the surrealist expatriates Leonora Carrington, Remedios Varo and Alice Rahon. The retrospective at MAM is being curated by the renowned expert on surrealism and Latin American art Dawn Adès, and will explore the development of Golding’s work, placing it in the context of modern art in Mexico. Not only the first retrospective on the artist but the exhibition will also offer the opportunity to see Golding’s work alongside a number of Mexican artists from the MAM collection who inspired his development.
The retrospective will take place at the Museum of Modern Art, Mexico City from 9 May – 28 July 2024 and will be accompanied by a significant new publication on the artist organised by Messums.org.
