New Exhibitions in Southampton this Summer

11 May 2022

From extraordinary works on paper to major outdoor installations, explore our program of exhibitions taking place in Southampton this summer

Camille Henrot

Sculpture 28 May – 4 September 2022 Paintings 2 July – 31 July 2022

Complementing an outdoor installation of major bronze sculptures on view throughout the summer, French artist Camille Henrot will present a selection of recent paintings at Hauser & Wirth Southampton beginning 2 July.

Produced in large part in Europe over the last two years, Henrot’s work from the series Butter and Bread, Is Today Tomorrow, System of Attachment, and Monday will be shown together for the first time in the United States. These works typify the ambitious and fiercely creative approach that has cemented Henrot—whose practice moves seamlessly between film, painting, drawing, sculpture, and installation—as one of the most influential and unique voices in contemporary art. Her art is celebrated for its playful and incisive investigations into the banalities of everyday life and the tension we experience as both private individuals and global citizens.

‘Of Making and Material’

2 July – 10 September 2022 Residency with Florian Gadsby 1 – 15 August 2022

Hauser & Wirth has also announced the first US exhibition of the gallery’s UK-based initiative Make Hauser & Wirth, which was launched in Somerset, England, in 2018 to present exceptional contemporary handcrafted design by leading artist-makers from around the world. Located at 50 Hampton Road, a short walk from Hauser & Wirth’s Southampton gallery space, ‘Of Making and Material’ will comprise exceptional works informed by the respective creators’ intimate understanding of their chosen materials—from wood, ceramics, and metal to glass and concrete—and mastery of methods rooted in tradition or pioneering new techniques. Together, the objects on view celebrate dedication to knowledge, process, and experimentation.

On view through 10 September, this exhibition reflects a re-evaluation of the aesthetics of craft, highlighting the exceptional creativity and substance of the makers’ individual approaches and suggesting the true breadth of art.

Luchita Hurtado

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.
