New Exhibitions in Southampton this Summer
Ed Clark and Stanley Whitney. On the Path
28 May – 25 June 2022
Hauser & Wirth will open its summer season in Southampton on 28 May with an exhibition of extraordinary watercolors and dry pigment works on paper by celebrated painters—and dear friends—Ed Clark and Stanley Whitney. Occupying the entire Southampton gallery space, this exhibition explores the two artists’ shared interest in drawing and watercolor as comprising a distinct and critical component of their respective painting practices. The pairing of their luminous works on paper will provide visitors insight into their sustained experimentations with color, form, and the seductive materiality of paint.

Sculpture 28 May – 4 September 2022
Paintings 2 July – 31 July 2022
A special presentation by French artist Camille Henrot will begin on 28 May with an outdoor installation of major bronze sculptures. On view throughout the summer season, the sculptures will be complemented by a selection of paintings from Henrot’s ongoing series Butter and Bread, Is Today Tomorrow and Systems of Attachment. Many of these 2D works, which were made over the course of the pandemic, will be on view to the public for the first time in this presentation.
6 August – 4 September 2022
Rounding out the Southampton summer season, Hauser & Wirth will present an intimate exhibition of rarely seen works on paper by acclaimed late artist Luchita Hurtado. Opening 6 August, this celebration of Hurtado’s lifelong fascination with corporality, universality, and self-affirmation features drawings from her ruminative I Am series of personal self-portraits using an unconventional perspective.
