Opening Reception: Larry Bell | Luchita Hurtado

  • Thu 12 May 2022
  • 6 – 8 pm

Join us for the opening reception of our brand new exhibitions ‘Larry Bell. New Work’ and ‘Luchita Hurtado’ at Hauser & Wirth London.

One of the most renowned and influential artists to emerge from the Los Angeles art scene of the 1960s, Larry Bell presents brand-new works from his most recent Deconstructed Cube series and his Open Box series. A leading exponent of California’s ‘Light and Space’ movement, Bell has consistently focused on the properties of surface and light throughout his career.

Featuring previously unseen works from Luchita Hurtado’s Sky Skin series, this exhibition centres on the artist’s pursuit of the other worldly and a broader reflection on life and death. Beginning in the mid-1970s, Hurtado’s gaze turned upwards, inverting the downward-facing perspective of her earlier I Am paintings. A selection of transitional drawings merge these series, as elements of the female body, including breast, stomach and knee viewed from a down-cast angle, transform into rolling mountains in a continuation of the artist’s imaginative experimentation with figurative landscapes.

‘Larry Bell. New Work’ and ‘Luchita Hurtado’ are open until 30 July 2022.
