Far more than a muse or an icon of a single decade, Marisol (Venezuelan and American, born France, 1930–2016) created art that in radical ways addressed challenging and urgent issues of the twentieth and now twenty-first centuries.

“Marisol: A Retrospective” is drawn largely from the collection of artworks Marisol kept in her personal possession and left to the Buffalo AKG upon her death, in a historic and transformative bequest. These works are joined by key loans that help examine and contextualize her work over its long arc from the 1950s to the early 2000s. This internationally touring retrospective, organized by the Buffalo AKG, is the most comprehensive survey of her work ever assembled. It celebrates her satirical and deceptively political sculptures of the 1960s, while also assembling, for the first time, her works about the life of the oceans, and those that engage with pressing social concerns. This landmark exhibition demonstrates the extraordinary relevance of Marisol’s unique vision of culture and society.
