Hauser & Wirth Editions

23 October 2018

Printmaking is a critical element within the practice of many of Hauser & Wirth’s artists. For some, the blank plate or paper offers a space for pure material experimentation, a liberation from theory, and a return to the raw creative act. Others find comfort and respite in the precision required by the etching plate or the rigid mechanics of the press, which become the antithesis to the ambiguity and accidental nature of paint, charcoal, or clay. The resulting prints offer powerful insights into creative processes and allow viewers to better understand artists’ perspectives on the world.

The exhibition includes several multi-part installations such as 'Aesthetic of Disappearance' (2014) and 'Meditation on Violence' (2014). The exhibition is curated by Gianni Jetzer, an independent curator in New York and Curator-at-Large at the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington DC.

Body Issues: Rita Ackermann and Carol Rama

15 April 2018
