Hauser & Wirth is pleased to present its first London exhibition with Jack Whitten, the American abstractionist celebrated for his innovative processes of applying and transfiguring paint in works equally alert to materiality, politics and metaphysics. Curated by Richard Shiff, the presentation will have a historical focus, bringing together a large number of his paintings from the 1980s. Whitten holds a unique place in the narrative of postwar American art: over the course of a five-decade career, he has bridged gestural abstraction and process art, experimenting ceaselessly to arrive at a nuanced language of painting that hovers between mechanical automation and personal expression. Whitten has had a profound influence on many artists working today and in September 2016 he was awarded the 2015 National Medal of Arts in recognition of his major contribution to the cultural legacy of the US. Works by the artist will be shown in ‘Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power’ at Tate Modern (12 July – 22 October 2017), which coincides with his solo presentation at Hauser & Wirth London.

Hauser & Wirth London is delighted to present a solo exhibition by Monika Sosnowska. The exhibition features an entirely new body of work and is the artist’s inaugural exhibition in the gallery’s London space. In recent times Sosnowska has further developed her dynamic approach to materiality in which architectural and sculptural elements are hewn together in disorienting new configurations. Entitled ‘Structural Exercises’, the presentation comprises seven distinct sculptural works that together form an immersive exhibition which takes over the North Gallery; it is also the first major project she has staged in London since ‘reconfigured’ at The Serpentine Gallery in 2005.

Hauser & Wirth London is delighted to present Jakub Julian Ziolkowski’s exhibition, ‘Ian Moon’. Ziolkowski conjures an imaginary universe in which phantasmagoric imagery appears across diverse media including ceramics, sculptural reliefs and works on canvas. Individually compelling, when seen together, his works create a transgressive mindscape, bristling with narrative and detail. The current series of works, presented for the first time, has been made following a recent phase of intense creative experimentation during an eight-month period while the artist was living in Hanoi, Vietnam.
