Folkert de Jong Solo Exhibition “Last Nation” at MOCA Tucson
In this mid-career retrospective at MOCA Tucson “Last Nation“, Folkert de Jong explores themes of global conquest, particularly events tied to The Netherlands yet mirrored and understood within a U.S. historical context. Frequently referencing figures and dress of Old Dutch Masters, de Jong bears witness to traumatic events and invites viewers to share with him in the acknowledgment of the horrors of war and subjugation. This exhibition features notable sculptures, installations, and paintings from the artist’s oeuvre, exploring the recurring self-destructive tendency of humanity. The exhibition is on view now through June 30, 2018.
