Artist Talk and Exhibition Walkthrough: Matthew Day Jackson with Randy Kennedy
On the occasion of the exhibition ‘Matthew Day Jackson. Flowers, Windows and Thistles’ on view at Hauser & Wirth in Zurich, we joined artist Matthew Day Jackson and Hauser & Wirth Director of Special Projects, Randy Kennedy for a live virtual walkthrough and conversation on Zoom.
About ‘Matthew Day Jackson. Flowers, Windows and Thistles’
Matthew Day Jackson’s practice grapples with myriad aspects of human experience, honing in on the capacity for destruction and violence under the guise of invention and discovery. The artist returns to Hauser & Wirth Zürich to debut a suite of new drawings and paintings. Utilising the conventions of still life and landscapes in combination with an idiosyncratic use of material and form, these works critique those traditions, their place in Western culture, and the ways they intersect with Western hegemony.
