Summary: "ICA Miami presents the first museum exhibition of work by self-taught New Zealand artist Susan Te Kahurangi King. Since early childhood, King has made drawings comprising bold colors and refined rendering. In some of her earliest drawings, the artist’s undulating lines coalesce into appropriated cartoon characters, in works that predate pop art. The exhibition includes some 60 works, many of which are on view for the first time, and surveys the various periods of King’s work: from her foundational childhood drawings, to her extensive and vibrant notebooks, to her mature works of the 1970s and ’80s. The exhibition also features King’s output since 2008, which follow a nearly twenty-year dormant period. In these latest works, the artist’s practice goes beyond representational content to explore organic abstraction. King’s decades of artistry have resulted from an open-ended process of looking. Taken together, this wondrous encyclopedia of images demonstrates King’s singular worldview."--Publisher description.
