Special Screening: ‘Paradox’ and ‘Donald Judd’

In celebration of the exhibition ‘The Sylvio Perlstein Collection. A Luta Continua,’ from June to July, Hauser & Wirth presents a series of film screenings, introducing the significant artists in the collection and in art history. Robert Ryman in ‘Paradox’ (2007) Duration: ca. 15min Growing up in Nashville, Robert Ryman had a strong interest in music. A bebop musician in his youth, Ryman’s musical knowledge influenced his work as a painter. His approach to learning an instrument was applied to painting. Ryman prefers to work alone, using white paint on square forms, he creates works such as Philadelphia Prototype, highlighting the subtle nuances of a surface and exploring the role that context and perception play in a visual experience. The Artist’s Studio: Donald Judd (1972) Directed by Michael Blackwood Duration: 33 mins Of the generation following the Abstract Expressionists, Donald Judd was one of the key figures among American artists who pioneered new directions in the 1960s. In 1968 he bought a cast-iron building on 101 Spring Street in SoHo that housed his family, his studio and a showroom on the ground-floor. There he could exhibit his works which he preferred to call ‘specific objects,’ the title of his manifesto published in 1965. Free Admission. Limited seats available. RSVP required: Address: Fringe Upstairs, The Fringe Club, 2 Lower Albert Rd, Central
