Resilience
Philip Guston in 1971

Opens on Saturday 14 September from 3–7 pm 14 Sep 2019 – 5 Jan 2020

About

Beginning 14 September, Hauser & Wirth is pleased to present the first solo Los Angeles exhibition in over half a century dedicated to American artist Philip Guston. ‘Resilience: Philip Guston in 1971’ sheds light on a pivotal year that launched Guston into the final prolific decade of his career, during which he painted what are now celebrated as some of the most important works of art of the 20th Century. On view will be key examples from two major series, the Roma paintings and the Nixon drawings, that together tell a story of artistic renewal and invention. Created in the wake of resoundingly negative reviews garnered by his 1970 exhibition at the Marlborough Gallery in New York City – ‘Clumsy.’ ‘Embarrassing.’ ‘Simple-minded.’ –  and during a time of social and political turmoil in the United States, these figurative paintings and narrative satirical drawings bear witness to an artist at the height of his powers, exquisitely responsive to his world. 

‘Resilience: Philip Guston in 1971’ is curated by the artist’s daughter, Musa Mayer, and will be accompanied by a new publication.
