Explore the first institutional solo presentation of Jacqueline de Jong's work in the UK.

Jacqueline de Jong is considered one of the crucial artistic figures of post-war avant-garde art. Throughout a career spanning half a century, de Jong has developed a unique painterly practice. Expressive in style, her work exhibits uninhibited eroticism, violence and humour. In parallel to her work as a painter, she was editor of The Situationist Times (1962-1967) and a member of the Situationist International during her early years in Paris in the 1960s.

The Ultimate Kiss is curated by Juliette Desorgues (Curator of Visual Arts, MOSTYN) and organised in collaboration with WIELS, Brussels where the exhibition was presented by Devrim Bayar (Curator, WIELS) and Xander Karskens (Director, De Ateliers May 1 - August 15 2021). The exhibition will travel to the Kunstmuseum Ravensburg, Germany in 2022.

The exhibition is kindly supported by The Mondriaan Fund, The Dutch Embassy, London, The Tyrer Charitable Trust, Dürst Britt & Mayhew, Gallery, The Hague and Pippy Houldsworth Gallery, London.

An exhibition catalogue Jacqueline de Jong: The Ultimate Kiss, featuring texts by Devrim Bayar, Juliette Desorgues, Alison Gingeras, Xander Karskens and Niña Weijers, and published by Fonds Mercator, is available to purchase from the MOSTYN Shop or order online.
