About the exhibition:
November 15, 2018 through January 27, 2019 

Since their invention in 1817, bicycles have affected the progress of society in terms of both culture and modern industry. As a result of this broad impact, bikes have influenced artists over the past two centuries, with luminaries such as Marcel Duchamp and Pablo Picasso featuring bicycle parts in ground-breaking sculptures. Today, bicycles inspire a spectrum of international artists. "I Love to Ride My Bicycle" presents work by contemporary practitioners from Argentina, Australia, Canada, France, the United States, and Vietnam who incorporate bikes as muse and material. Ranging from drawing, painting, and photography to sculpture, performance, and video installation, their artworks manifest the ongoing significance of two-wheeled human-powered vehicles. At the same time, the works convey the widespread enthusiasm for bicycles expressed by the title of the exhibition.
