Opening reception: ‘Arp: Master of 20th Century Sculpture’

  • Tue 3 September 2019
  • 6 pm

Hauser & Wirth Hong Kong invites you to the opening reception for the first solo exhibition in Greater China of one of the masters of 20th-century modern art: Hans (Jean) Arp (1886 – 1966), who was at the forefront of the 20th-century avant garde, and associated strongly with Surrealism and the international Dada movement. Over a period of more than sixty years Arp produced an extraordinarily influential body of work that shifts fluidly between abstraction and representation, and between organic and geometric forms. The list of artists Arp befriended and collaborated with reads like a Who’s Who of the avant garde: Max Ernst, Joan Miró, Amedeo Modigliani, Wassily Kandinsky, Piet Mondrian, Sonia and Robert Delaunay, Francis Picabia, Paul Klee, Kurt Schwitters – to name just a few.
