Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles

Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles is pleased to present three new exhibitions...."Paul McCarthy. WS Spinoffs, Wood Statues, Brown Rothkos," “Takesada Matsutani,” and “Monika Sosnowska.” 
July1-2017-Paul McCarthy-WS-Spinoffs
"Paul McCarthy. WS Spinoffs, Wood Statues, Brown Rothkos" is a comprehensive exhibition of expressive black walnut sculptures from the White Snow series by Paul McCarthy, one of America's most challenging and influential artists. This is the gallery's first exhibition in Los Angeles devoted to the provocative and influential work of acclaimed LA-based artist Paul McCarthy. Never before exhibited in Los Angeles, these exuberant works violate expectations of the beloved German folktale 'Snow White.' McCarthy's distorted abstractions of Dopey, the Prince, even Snow White herself, will inhabit the North A gallery. This show follows McCarthy's Raw Spinoffs Continuations exhibition at Hauser & Wirth New York in 2016.

Coinciding with commissioned works debuting at the Venice Biennale, Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles is honored to present the first ever exhibition in Los Angeles devoted to the work of the Osaka-born, Paris-based artist Takesada Matsutani. Over a five-decade career that began with his participation in the Gutai Art Association and evolved to express the tangled complexities of a life lived between France and Japan, Matsutani has developed a unique visual language of form and materials. The exhibition highlights three distinct periods in the artist's oeuvre and includes 1960s Gutai era pieces never before shown outside of Japan, one of the artist's largest installations from 1983, and a new pre-figuration of his Venice Biennale project. Organized with Olivier Renaud- Clément, the exhibition will remain on view at the South gallery from 1 July through 17 September 2017.July1-2017-Hauser-WirthLA-TakesadaMatsutani
Organized with Olivier Renaud-Clément, “Takesada Matsutani,” offers an expansive look at Matsutani's unique visual language of form and materials. His paintings, drawings, and sculptures engage themes of the eternal and echo the endless cycles of life and death, revealing the influence of the ethos of Gutai on the artist's early experimentation and its lasting impact today. The exhibition will also include a site-specific floor work, continuing a long-standing performative aspect of artist's practice. Matsutani will create this piece in the South gallery of Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles.

“Monika Sosnowska,” the first Los Angeles solo exhibition for the noted Polish artist. The exhibition features a new body of work that responds to characteristic elements of existing 1960s Polish architecture in sculptural installations that reflect and riff upon history and personal experience.
July1-2017-HauserandWirth-MonikaSosnowska
Wrought from industrial materials and objects, Sosnowska’s works ‘sample’ various architectural details that she idiosyncratically warps in order to immerse viewers in environments that are both uncannily familiar and disconcertingly surreal.

On view: July 1 - September 17, 2017; Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles is open daily from Wednesday – Sunday, 11 am – 6 pm. 

Where: Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles, 901 E 3rd St, Los Angeles, CA 90013
