This survey exhibition of the American figurative painter highlights key aspects of Leon Golub’s oeuvre from the 1950s until his death in 2004. Throughout his career Golub was guided by the idea that art should be socially relevant. His works are profoundly psychological and evocative – often painted on a huge scale – and return again and again to themes of oppression, violence and the misuse of power.
Leon Golub: Bite Your Tongue is organized in collaboration with Serpentine Galleries, London
