We at the Stedelijk Museum today mourn the devastating loss of one of the most extraordinary artists of our time. Mike Kelley's awesome and expansive brilliance, his far-reaching influence, and his generative contributions to the history of art will resonate far into the future. He leaves us all with a remarkable oeuvre but also with the responsibility to honor his tremendous accomplishments.

While it has been an exceptional privilege to work closely with Mike on the Stedelijk’s planned retrospective exhibition, guest-curated by Eva Meyer-Hermann, we will not be making any statements regarding plans for this exhibition at the present time.
