Exhibition

Amy Sherald. The World We Make

12 Oct-23 Dec 2022

Overview

Amy Sherald, one of the defining contemporary portraitists in the United States, unveils a suite of new paintings in a major exhibition at Hauser & Wirth London, marking the artist’s first solo show in Europe. Featuring a series of small-scale and monumental portraits across both the gallery’s London spaces, this presentation is the artist’s largest to date with the gallery. Sherald is acclaimed for her paintings of Black Americans at leisure that have become landmarks in the grand tradition of social portraiture – a tradition that for too long excluded the Black men, women, families, and artists whose lives have been inextricable from public and politicised narratives.
