Georges Vantongerloo A Pioneer of Modern Art

A founding member of the Dutch movement De Stijl, Georges Vantongerloo’s wide-ranging career began in the late 1910s in the hotbed of geometric experimentation in sculpture, painting, architecture, and design, and continued for another five full decades. Curated by Dr. Angela Thomas Schmid, the works featured in our exhibition at Hauser & Wirth Rämistrasse retrace Vantongerloo’s artistic evolution throughout his five-decade career. Down the street at Hauser & Wirth Publishers’ Headquarters, unique archival materials from the estate further contextualize Vantongerloo’s practice through books and historical photographs and documents. Hauser & Wirth Publishers Headquarters is open Thursday – Saturday, 12 – 4 pm or by appointment, Rämistrasse 5, Zurich. Hauser & Wirth Rämistrasse is open Wednesday – Friday, 2 – 5 pm or by appointment, Rämistrasse 16, Zurich
