In the largest-ever American survey of the Dutch artist’s work, more than 200 pieces by M.C. Escher will come to Brooklyn’s Industry City. Escher’s mathematically inspired, visually stunning style has fascinated art lovers the world over, most famously through the likes of Drawing Hands (a lithograph of two hands drawing each other) and multiple works with impossible staircases. This exhibition provides a timeline of the artist’s works from the 1920s to the 1960s. It includes some of his most recognizable pieces, like Waterfall and Hand with Reflecting Sphere. The exhibition also includes educational resources and interactive displays that further heighten the experience.
May 21 — May 26
