Join us for the public opening of Hauser & Wirth’s first exhibition with American artist and revered Los Angeles educator Charles Gaines. Unveiling new grid works that focus on native trees from Palm Canyon, Gaines employs his singular ‘systems’ – methods he has engaged for over four decades to challenge subjectivity and direct personal experience. Alongside this entirely new body of Plexi work, Gaines will show a new series of watercolors as well as ‘Manifestos 3’ (2018), which comes from his acclaimed Manifestos series, of which earlier examples are in the permanent collections of The Museum of Modern Art, New York, and The Hammer Museum, Los Angeles. This landmark exhibition in the artist’s adopted hometown sheds light on Gaines’s influence in the Los Angeles artistic community and beyond.
