A Luta Continua. The Sylvio Perlstein Collection

26 Apr – 27 Jul 2018, Hauser & Wirth New York, 22nd Street

Unfolding across all three floors of Hauser & Wirth’s 22nd Street location, ‘A Luta Continua’ is the first presentation in the United States of the Sylvio Perlstein Collection.

For more than four decades, Perlstein has lived between Brazil, Belgium, France, and New York City, and has built an intensely personal collection that reflects his inimitable passion for seeking out and supporting groundbreaking artists. Remarkably diverse, the Perlstein Collection traces the course of twentieth-century art, spanning Dada and Surrealism to Abstraction, Land Art, Conceptual Art, Minimal Art, Pop Art, Op Art, Arte Povera, Nouveau Réalisme, and Contemporary Art. A highlight of the Perlstein Collection, featured prominently in this exhibition, is an exceptional display of Surrealist photography from 1920 to 1940.

Curated by David Rosenberg, ‘A Luta Continua’ presents more than 350 works from 266 artists including Josef Albers, Carl Andre, Diane Arbus, Hans Bellmer, Andre Breton, Marcel Broodthaers, Alexander Calder, Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, Hannah Höch, Jenny Holzer, Donald Judd, Sol LeWitt, René Magritte, Man Ray, Bruce Nauman, Brice Marden, Robert Morris, Edward Ruscha, Robert Ryman, Fred Sandback, Robert Smithson, Jean Tinguely, Andy Warhol.
