Gustav Metzger




The Serpentine Gallery presents a major survey of work from six decades by the influential artist and activist Gustav Metzger, 29 September – 8 November 2009. Metzger’s practice represents a life-long involvement in left-wing politics, ecology and the creative and destructive powers of twentieth and twenty-first century industrialised societies. This will be the first time such an extensive overview of Metzger’s work has been presented in the UK. Metzger is working closely with the Serpentine Gallery to examine his own archives and those kept by institutions, identifying milestone works from his career and developing new works specifically for this exhibition.
