‘‘The Milk of Dreams’ takes its title from a book by Leonora Carrington (1917–2011),’ says Cecilia Alemani, ‘in which the Surrealist artist describes a magical world where life is constantly re-envisioned through the prism of the imagination. It is a world where everyone can change, be transformed, become something or someone else. The exhibition takes Leonora Carrington’s otherworldly creatures, along with other figures of transformation, as companions on an imaginary journey through the metamorphoses of bodies and definitions of the human.’

Christina Quarles joins Hauser & Wirth

Born in Chicago in 1985, Christina Quarles has achieved wide acclaim for her exploration of bodily experience—from the weight and gravity of the physical world, to the pleasures and pressures of societal existence—in vivid, enigmatic paintings teeming with limbs, torsos, and faces reconfigured into new forms. Brought to life through painterly gestures and an unexpected palette, the artist’s scenes suggest the different ways in which race, gender, and sexuality contribute to the coalescing of identity. Quarles’ work spans drawing, painting, and installation, and embraces the permeability of the constructed form. As a queer, cis-woman born to a Black father and a white mother, she has described her position of engagement with the world as ‘multiply situated,’ an experience of embodiment reflected profoundly in her sui generis art.
