CinemArt screening: Roman Signer Films, 2008 – 2017

Please join us with Roman Signer for a presentation of 24 films by the internationally celebrated Swiss conceptual artist, all created in the last decade. Signer has been redefining sculpture for more than 40 years and is regarded as one of the finest representatives of Process and Conceptual art. In his works, the artist combines three-dimensional objects, live action, photography and cinematic documentation, investigating the relationship between sudden energy releases and calm; a wittily succinct visual commentary on cause and effect. CinemArt is a film series presented by Hauser & Wirth in collaboration with Arthouse Zürich. A cinematic journey into the art world, this series offers unique views into the lives and work of significant international artists, including a selection connected to Hauser & Wirth’s programme. The selected documentaries feature artists including Laurie Anderson, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Philip Guston, Eva Hesse, Jenny Holzer, Josephsohn, Piero Manzoni, Gerhard Richter, Dieter Roth, and Roman Signer.
