JACK WHITTEN : MORE DIMENSIONS THAN YOU KNOW
Sep 27 - Nov 18, 2017
Hauser & Wirth is pleased to present its first London exhibition with Jack Whitten, the American abstractionist celebrated for his innovative processes of applying and transfiguring paint in works equally alert to materiality, politics and metaphysics. Curated by Richard Shiff, the presentation will have a historical focus, bringing together a large number of his paintings from the 1980s. Whitten holds a unique place in the narrative of postwar American art: over the course of a five-decade career, he has bridged gestural abstraction and process art, experimenting ceaselessly to arrive at a nuanced language of painting that hovers between mechanical automation and personal expression. Whitten has had a profound influence on many artists working today and in September 2016 he was awarded the 2015 National Medal of Arts in recognition of his major contribution to the cultural legacy of the US. Works by the artist will be shown in ‘Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power’ at Tate Modern (12 July – 22 October 2017), which coincides with his solo presentation at Hauser & Wirth London.

Mar 1 - Apr 28, 2018
Private view Wed Feb 28 6pm - 8pm
Lorna Simpson’s inaugural exhibition at Hauser & Wirth London, ‘Unanswerable’, features new and recent work across three different media: painting, photographic collage and sculpture. Simpson came to prominence in the 1980s through her pioneering approach to conceptual photography, which featured striking juxtapositions of text and staged images and raised questions about the nature of representation, identity, gender, race and history. These concerns are reflected throughout the exhibition to present the artist’s expanding and increasingly multi-disciplinary practice today.

MATTHEW DAY JACKSON : STILL LIFE AND THE RECLINING NUDE
Mar 1 - Apr 28, 2018
Private view Wed Feb 28 6pm - 8pm
Hauser & Wirth London is delighted to present Matthew Day Jackson’s upcoming exhibition, ‘Still Life and the Reclining Nude’. The artist’s interdisciplinary practice explores a myriad of aspects of human experience and draws from sources that reveal both our intrinsic inventiveness and its counter-point, our ongoing capacity for destruction.
