As part of Play: City Circuit for Contemporary Art, Piero Golia is presenting Manifest Destiny, an installation that invites the visitor to leap from the top of a platform, in a kind of trust fall, onto a thick stunt pad.

Ulrich Museum of Art, Wichita, Kansas

Solutions to Mortality is the result of Piero Golia’s Grafly commission at the Ulrich Museum. This commission invites artists to respond to the museum’s large collection of artwork by Charles M. Grafly. For his exhibition Golia has placed three works in the sculpture park of the museum: a cast of George Washington’s nose copied from Mount Rushmore, an upside-down statue of Garibaldi, and a section of the wall that separates Los Angeles from Orange County.

Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit

A major group exhibition of ninety-nine artists based in the United States addresses Detroit’s ongoing economic crisis and its 2013 bankruptcy. Four years after a federal judge approved Detroit’s bankruptcy-exit plan, the city’s financial present and future are still in flux. This exhibition is a reflection on the realities of a city that was once one of the country’s wealthiest and most diverse. Work by Piero Golia, Alex Israel, Adam McEwen, Josephine Meckseper, and Sterling Ruby is included.

April 28–July 16, 2017
Kunsthaus Baselland, Switzerland

From the outset of his career, Piero Golia’s principal focus has been the theatrical and the conceptual in art, specifically supreme gestures and the completion of seemingly impossible acts. For this first institutional showing of his work in Switzerland, Golia will realize a new work developed specially for the Kunsthaus Baselland.
