Printmaking Glossary

This printmaking glossary has been produced to accompany the exhibition ‘Rita Ackermann. Splits: Printing | Painting’, on view at Hauser & Wirth, 18th Street through 26 July 2024.  

Heralding a significant leap in Ackermann's artistic practice, the seven large-scale silkscreens on view represent a dramatic convergence of the technical processes of printmaking with the artist's sustained exploration of form, movement and erasure. Produced in collaboration with master printer Keigo Takahashi, Ackermann sought to transform paintings into prints, without recourse to the reproduction of a model.

Printmaking Glossary

‘There was a discipline in the thinking and the execution of things at the atelier . . . With printmaking, if you have a copper plate or a zinc plate and you’re working with the acid or burin, whatever your tool, it’s permanent. That’s it. You can’t go back.’—Kate Van Houten in ‘Life to Matter

Getting to Know: Anj Smith

Inside her exhibition at our New York gallery, Anj Smith met with a group of young people from Culture for One, to talk about her new body of work. Set within ecologically devastated landscapes, the gorgeous but unsettling canvases in ‘Drifting Habitations’ challenge the notion of fixed locations and invite us to consider the fluidity of our experiences and perceptions of the world. Delving into the complex relationship between self and space, Smith’s luminous works question the very nature of our connections to the environments we inhabit.

Mika Rottenberg: Rottenbar

On 9 November, Hauser & Wirth unveiled the Rottenbar, a permanent installation created by Argentina-born, New York-based artist Mika Rottenberg on the second floor of the gallery’s building on West 22nd Street. Made from carved bittersweet vines and reclaimed plastic that Rottenberg molds, extrudes and presses into sculptural forms, the Rottenbar—from conception to production—suggests the artist’s studio can be an incubator for a regenerative circle of creation and consumption.
