Allianz Explorer NYC MoMA Kingelez



Allianz is the lead sponsor of the first U.S. retrospective devoted to the work of visionary Congolese artist Bodys Isek Kingelez (1948-2015). Currently on view at The Museum of Modern Art, Bodys Isek Kingelez: City Dreams features more than 30 of the artist’s “extreme maquettes"—which take the form of intricate sculptures that suggest utopian possibilities for global urban sites. City Dreams includes an interactive virtual-reality experience of Kingelez’s largest cityscape, Ville Fantôme, developed by Third Pillar and in partnership with Allianz, which allows visitors to virtually traverse the imagined city. With this special feature, Allianz and MoMA present a unique opportunity to explore the incredible detail that characterizes the artist’s work, and gain new perspectives into his process and vision.
