Wael Shawky
Cabaret Crusades
three videos, 2010, 2012, 2014, using 200-year-old marionettes from a collection in Italy for the first installment, custom-made ceramic figures for the second, and custom-made Murano glass figures for the third.

Today was supposed to be the last day to see this amazing trio of films and accompanying sculptures and drawings at PS1 MoMA- extended through September 7th. 

Picasso Sculpture, now on view, is on Hyperallergic’s “Best of 2015” list, along with past exhibitions Latin America in Construction: Architecture 1955–1980, One-Way Ticket: Jacob Lawrence’s Migration Series and Other Visions of the Great Movement North, and Wael Shawky: Cabaret Crusades at MoMA PS1.
