In collaboraiton with Francesco Bonami, Luxembourg & Dayan present a group exhibition that rethinks the trope of the “kiss” in artworks. 

Back in 1971, Vito Acconci made a series of prints titled Kiss Off, which explored the act of kissing and what it can encompass. This year the exhibition takes Acconci’s Kiss Off as a cue, featuring works of Acconci, Patty Chang, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Joan Miró, Elizabeth Peyton, Francis Picabia, Sigmar Polke, and Andy Warhol, among others. On the view starting February 23rd through April 14th, KISS OFF will take the audience through the artistic explorations of the theme in 20th century, with some works very literal, like those of Sigmar Polke and Andy Warhol, while others—abstract.

在与弗朗切斯科 波纳米的合作中,卢森堡和达扬举办了一场重新思考艺术作品中“吻”的比喻的联展。

早在1971年,维托·阿康奇制作了一系列名为《接吻》的版画,探索了接吻的行为和它可以包含的内容。今年的展览以阿康奇的接吻为主题,展出了阿康奇,张怡,菲利克斯·冈萨雷斯·托雷斯,胡安·米罗,伊丽莎白·佩,弗朗西斯·皮卡比亚,西格马尔·波尔克和安迪·沃霍尔等作品。从2月23日到4月14日,《接吻》将带领观众对20世纪的主题进行艺术探索,其中一些作品非常文学化,如西格马尔·波尔克和安迪·沃霍尔的作品,而另一些作品则是抽象的。
