A last chance to see this beautiful Mike Kelley retrospective at the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam. Open through April 1, 2013.

In the largest presentation of this achievement ever organized—the first comprehensive survey since 1993—the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam has brought together almost 200 of the artist’s works, spanning the entirety of his 35-year career.
