Marisol: A Retrospective will open at the Buffalo AKG Art Museum on July 12, 2024. The exhibition is the most significant retrospective to date dedicated to the art of Marisol (Venezuelan and American, born France, 1930&2016), one of the most prominent yet least well-known artists of her generation, who bequeathed her estate to the Buffalo AKG in 2016. Featuring nearly 250 artworks, including 39 on view for the first time in the tour, Marisol: A Retrospective will be installed across the 9,500-square-foot third floor of the new Jeffrey E. Gundlach Building.

Through its presentation of not only the artist’s six decades of work realized across media, but also previously unseen archival material and ephemera, Marisol: A Retrospective offers an extraordinary experience of the breadth of her groundbreaking practice, her complex subjectivity, as well as her powerful creative agency.
