Marcel Dzama: Drawing on a Revolution
La Casa Encendida, Madrid
September 28, 2017–January 7, 2018

Drawing on a Revolution presents both early and recent drawings, dioramas, sculptures, and videos by Marcel Dzama across three rooms at La Casa Encendida.

Each room in the exhibition corresponds to works in different media. The first room presents drawings ranging from Dzama's earliest portrayals of animals and humans to more recent works based on the theme of "revolution." The second room is devoted to the artist's sculptural projects, including costume designs and puppets. In the third room, a screening of the video work Une danse des bouffons (A Jester’s Dance) (2013) is accompanied by a storyboard for the film in Spanish—including graphite drawings of every character and scene—that has been created specially for this exhibition.
