About the event
'Christina Quarles. In 24 Days tha Sun’ll Set at 7pm' Following the presentation of her work at this year’s Venice Biennale, and ahead of her inclusion in the Biennale de Lyon, Christina Quarles will have her first major solo exhibition of new paintings with Hauser & Wirth in New York in September. Many of the works on view were created during the artist’s 2022 residency at the gallery’s Somerset location and draw inspiration from the local culture and the surrounding landscape of the English countryside, expanding upon her instinctual approach to figuration and richly layered visual vocabulary.
'Zoe Leonard. Excerpts from ‘Al río / To the River’' Over the past three decades, Zoe Leonard has probed the conditions of image-making and the politics of display, bringing together photography, sculpture, and installation in her acclaimed conceptual practice. This fall, Hauser & Wirth’s West 22nd Street space in New York will host a selection from her latest photographic project ‘Al río / To the River’ (2016–2022), a six-year undertaking in which the artist photographed the 1,200-mile stretch along the Rio Grande / Río Bravo that runs between Mexico and the United States and is used to demarcate the border. The full work, ‘Al río / To the River,’ encompassing hundreds of photographs, debuted at MUDAM, Luxembourg, in February, and will travel to the Musée d’Art Moderne, Paris this fall. Hauser & Wirth will present excerpts from this epic project for the first time in the United States.
'Jenny Holzer' Renowned American artist Jenny Holzer has used language as her primary medium since the 1970s, mobilizing poetic, political and personal texts to reflect on our experiences of power, violence, joy, idealism, nonsense, despair, fun and corruption. This September, Hauser & Wirth New York will present Holzer’s most recent works—including paintings, ‘curse tablets’ and a monumental kinetic display packing presidential tweets—in the artist’s long-anticipated solo exhibition for New York City.
