"Chryssa & New York," the first major survey of artwork by Chryssa in the United States since 1982, is co-organized by the Menil and Dia Art Foundation.

The exhibition explores the work of the Greek-born artist who was one of the first to incorporate neon into her practice. Her pivotal use of the medium, along with found elements of commercial signage and text, bridged ideas from the Pop, Conceptual, and Minimalist movements.

Focused on Chryssa’s output while she lived in New York from the late 1950s to the early 1970s, the exhibition presents major loans from American and European museums and collections.
