Beginning Friday, July 17, 2015, the Aspen Art Museum (AAM) presents Chris Ofili: Night and Day, the Turner Prize–winning British artist’s first solo museum survey. Encompassing five galleries and all three floors of the AAM, Night and Day features over thirty major paintings and a vast number of drawings, as well as sculptures spanning Ofili’s influential career from 1992 to the present. The AAM exhibition also includes three additional, new works created since the show’s initial presentation at the New Museum, New York (October 29, 2014–February 1, 2015).

Chris Ofili: Night and Day opens at the AAM with a reception with the artist on Thursday, July 16, and will be on view through Sunday, November 1, 2015. The exhibition was curated at the New Museum by Massimiliano Gioni, Artistic Director; Gary Carrion-Murayari, Kraus Family Curator; and Margot Norton, Associate Curator. It is overseen at the AAM by Heidi Zuckerman, Nancy and Bob Magoon CEO and Director.

Chris Ofili: Night and Day has been organized by the New Museum, New York.
