November 14 - December 22, 2018
New York, 22nd Street
Hauser & Wirth is pleased to present ‘ERRÂNCIA POÉTICA (POETIC WANDERINGS),’ a solo exhibition of new and recent works by Anna Maria Maiolino, one of the most significant artists working in Brazil today. For over five decades, Maiolino has drawn from her personal history as an artist, migrant, and mother, to produce works that relentlessly challenge accepted notions of desire, language, and sexuality while celebrating the viscerality of embodied experience. On view from 14 November through 22 December 2018, the exhibition highlights multiple dimensions within Maiolino’s oeuvre, presenting more than fifty of the artist’s sculptures, drawings, paintings, photographs, and videos, as well as a new site-specific installation that continues her iconic Terra Modelada (Modeled Earth) series.
