Hauser & Wirth Somerset is delighted to announce a special opportunity for Arthaus to work with artists John Wood and Paul Harrison.
In our March meeting, the artists will introduce their working partnership, share some of their work, answer your questions, and launch an exciting new project devised especially for Arthaus.
Artists John Wood and Paul Harrison, started working together in 1991. Currently Bristol based, both artists studied at Bath School of Art. Collaboratively they make videos, drawings, prints and sculpture. The artists’ spare, to-the-point works often explore how human beings interact with everyday objects and their surrounding architecture. In their experiments with movement and materials, many of which critic Tom Lubbock has described as “sculptural pratfalls,” Wood and Harrison employ exuberant invention, subtle slapstick, and a touch of light-hearted melancholy to reveal the inspiration and perspiration — as well as the occasional hint of desperation — behind all creative acts.
Arthaus meets once a month at the gallery and events are for members only, however for this opportunity there are a few spaces available for non-members.
If you are interested in joining this session, or if you would like to become a member of Arthaus please email [email protected]
Arthaus is a group of young people, aged 15 – 19 years old, who are interested in learning more about art and architecture, and who wish to meet other people with similar interests. Arthaus meet on the first Wednesday of every month from 4.30 – 6 pm at Hauser & Wirth Somerset to share ideas and take part in special events, meeting world-class artists, art world professionals and like-minded individuals.
As a member of Arthaus, you will gain experience of creative workshops, curation, public speaking and event planning, and will have the opportunity to attend events at Hauser & Wirth Somerset, as well as exclusive trips to Hauser & Wirth in London and other galleries.
