The exhibition will include early works, such as the comic book Baloney and Moccasins and Transportation Transportation (1970), as well as work from the 1980s and 1990s. Also featured will be recent works, including The Language of the Future (Jezyc Przyszlosci), Delusion and Pillow Book, all produced in 2012.
