Hauser & Wirth is delighted to announce Artist’s Choice: Summer Rooftop Film Series, a program of free evening film screenings that will take place on the newly renovated rooftop of the gallery’s West 22nd Street location in June and July. With films selected by New York-based gallery artists Rita Ackermann, Mary Heilmann, Matthew Day Jackson, Rashid Johnson, and Jack Whitten, Summer Rooftop Film Series will present a vibrant collection of cinematic works that illustrate the many ways in which the moving image provides a rich source of inspiration for visual artists.

The series premieres on Wednesday 7 June with a film selected by Matthew Day Jackson.

Offering dramatic views of New York’s West Chelsea Arts District and the Hudson River, Hauser & Wirth’s rooftop will feature works by a diverse group of artists from the gallery’s roster, including a special installation of Martin Creed’s ‘Work No. 2198,’ selected by the artist for the space. An assortment of drinks and light snacks will be available at the rooftop bar, operated by Great Performances, during each of the screenings.

While screenings are free, advanced booking is essential due to limited seating.
