Hauser & Wirth invites you to the opening reception of ‘Personal Private Public,’ a group exhibition exploring the idea of the inner life in three main themes: introspection, intimacy, and voyeurism. Contemplating the ways in which we reflect upon ourselves and others, the works on view oscillate in tone from moments of gentle privacy to voyeuristic intrusions, each addressing the power of observation through realms of their own making. The artists featured in ‘Personal Private Public’ are connected by an interest in probing the uneasy relationship between making and viewing images, often exploring timely themes of identity, sexuality, and fantasy.
