The grant supports the Menil Collection’s first ever comprehensive museum study of the living Greek artist Takis. This exhibit, “Takis: The Fourth Dimension” is primarily made up of the museum’s 25 works by Takis, which is the largest collection assembled outside of Europe. The exhibit will be on display from January 24 to July 16, 2015.
The Menil Foundation, Inc. was established in 1954 to foster knowledge and understanding of art, architecture, cultural studies, religion, and philosophy. The primary vehicle toward this goal is the Menil Collection, an art museum with a collection of approximately 17,000 objects, dedicated to the presentation, preservation, interpretation, and growth of its holdings.
