Weekend Gathering: Exploring the Art and Ideas of Isa Genzken and Harmony Korine

  • Sat 1 June 2024
  • 2 – 3.30 pm

Join us for an informal gathering in our exhibitions, ‘Isa Genzken. Wasserspeier and Angels,’ and ‘Harmony Korine. AGGRESSIVE DR1FTER Part II,’ at Hauser & Wirth London, to coincide with London Gallery Weekend.

Facilitated by our Learning Team, you will have an opportunity to get close to artwork, express your own opinions and explore the wealth of ideas and references raised by the artists’ practice.

What kinds of connections exist between film and painting? How can sculpture change our emotions? Can art be vulnerable? Come along, question, explore and find some inspiration.

Contact hwlondonlearning@hauserwirth.com to book your place.

About ‘Isa Genzken. Wasserspeier and Angels’ 
On view is a revival of Isa Genzken’s expansive installation ‘Wasserspeier and Angels’ (2004), marking 20 years since it was displayed in Genzken’s first major solo exhibition in London, UK. Originally responding to Hauser & Wirth’s former historic space in Piccadilly in 2004, the representation of Genzken’s complex assemblage in the city brings her work into a contemporary context, confronting sociopolitical themes that are still relevant today.

About ‘Harmony Korine. AGGRESSIVE DR1FTER Part II’
Over the last 30 years, American artist and filmmaker Harmony Korine has cultivated a multidisciplinary practice built upon tireless experimentation. A second chapter to Korine’s 2023 exhibition, ‘AGGRESSIVE DR1FTER,’ at Hauser & Wirth Downtown Los Angeles, this presentation in London features a series of paintings drawn from his newly released film ‘Aggro Dr1ft,’ which premiered at the Venice Film Festival in 2023 and was notably shot using infrared cameras. The exhibition’s acid-hued oils display an unprecedented fusion of Korine's painting and filmic practices. These hallucinatory works, like his films, blur the boundaries between ‘high’ and ‘low’ in ways that simultaneously attract and repel viewers with their hypnotic, otherworldly atmosphere.

Both exhibitions are on view through Saturday 27 July.

Please be advised that photographs will be taken at this event for use on the Hauser & Wirth website, social media and in other marketing materials.
