You’re invited to be among the first to experience our upcoming exhibition, An Atlas of Es Devlin, opening Saturday, November 18th from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. For her first monographic museum exhibition, Es Devlin, the genre-defying British contemporary artist and designer (b. 1971), will install her 30-year archive across the third floor of the museum. An Atlas of Es Devlin will feature over 300 sketches, paintings, illuminated paper cuts and projection-mapped rotating miniature sculptures that form the seeds of some of the most iconic, cultural congregations of music, poetry, art and activism in recent times.
Es Devlin is renowned for work that transforms audiences. Since beginning in small theaters in 1995, she has charted a course from kinetic stage designs at the National Theatre and the Metropolitan Opera to installations at major institutions, including the World Expo, Lincoln Center, and the United Nations headquarters. Her sculptures for Olympic Ceremonies, NFL Super Bowl halftime shows, and stadium tours for Beyoncé, The Weeknd, and U2 frame narratives that feel personal at a monumental scale. Over the past decade, she has adapted her craft to address climate and civilizational crises.
An Atlas of Es Devlin requires timed-entry tickets. Members are entitled to 4 tickets per household. Timed-entry tickets are available to members on a first come, first served basis while supplies last.
