Hauser & Wirth presents the solo exhibitions of Monika Sosnowska, Paul McCarthy, Takesada Matsutani. The exhibitons will run from July 1st through September 24th, 2017.
Exploring the poetics and politics of space, Monika Sosnowska makes sculptures that conjoin architecture and environment, often drawing from the complex and storied terrain of her home, Warsaw, Poland. Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles is pleased to present Sosnowska’s first exhibition in LA, which will feature a new body of work that reinterprets and responds to Poland’s 1960s and ‘70s modernist, populist architecture, creating dynamic forms wrought from steel and concrete. This show follows the artist’s monographic US museum exhibition inaugurating The Contemporary Austin’s expansion last year.
Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles is pleased to present a comprehensive exhibition of expressive black walnut sculptures from the White Snow series by Paul McCarthy, one of America’s most challenging and influential artists. Never before exhibited in Los Angeles, these exuberant works violate expectations of the beloved German folktale ‘Snow White.’ McCarthy’s distorted abstractions of Dopey, the Prince, even Snow White herself, will inhabit the North A gallery. This show follows McCarthy’s Raw Spinoffs Continuations exhibition at Hauser & Wirth New York in 2016.
Coinciding with commissioned works debuting at the Venice Biennale, Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles is honored to present the first ever exhibition in Los Angeles devoted to the work of the Osaka-born, Paris-based artist Takesada Matsutani. Over a five-decade career that began with his participation in the Gutai Art Association and evolved to express the tangled complexities of a life lived between France and Japan, Matsutani has developed a unique visual language of form and materials. The exhibition highlights three distinct periods in the artist’s oeuvre and includes 1960s Gutai era pieces never before shown outside of Japan, one of the artist’s largest installations from 1983, and a new pre-figuration of his Venice Biennale project. Organized with Olivier Renaud-Clément, the exhibition will remain on view at the South gallery from 1 July through 17 September 2017.
