Serialities Book and Printed Matter Lab

15 Feb – 8 Apr 2017, Hauser & Wirth New York, 22nd Street

A designated Book Lab in the form of a Reading Room will complement the exhibition ‘Serialities’ at Hauser & Wirth New York. Housed on the 3rd floor of the 22nd Street Gallery, the Reading Room will provide a literary sanctuary for gallery-goers as they settle in among tomes and long tables. A selection of books will contextualize major works on view including those of Carl Andre, Roni Horn, On Kawara, Zoe Leonard, Sherrie Levine, Sol LeWitt, Paul McCarthy, August Sander, and Ian Wallace. Additional texts will address the overarching theme of seriality that anchors the exhibition. Vitrines in the bookshop on the gallery’s ground floor will feature archival materials related to the work of August Sander, including his historic seven-volume portrait of Weimar Germany, ‘People of the Twentieth Century’.
