Exhibition View for Educators
Join us at Hauser & Wirth 22nd Street for a walkthrough of new exhibitions: ’Nicolas Party: Swamp’ and ’Ed Clark: The Big Sweep.’ Teaching artists and arts educators of all contexts and disciplines are encouraged to attend.
For his first solo exhibition with Hauser & Wirth in New York City, Nicolas Party transformed the first floor of the gallery’s 22nd Street building. New oil-on-copper paintings, cabinet compositions, signature pastel paintings, and two monumental site-specific murals will immerse visitors in Party’s practice, which simultaneously celebrates and challenges longstanding and cherished conventions of representational painting through his uniquely singular, subversive style.
Two full floors of Hauser & Wirth’s 22nd Street building in New York are devoted to ‘The Big Sweep,’ an exhibition covering the six-decade career of pioneering American abstractionist Ed Clark (1926 — 2019). Taking its title from Clark’s dedication to innovative techniques, particularly his revolutionary embrace of the common push broom as a paintbrush, this presentation documents the ways in which Clark pushed the boundaries of abstraction and its conventions beyond expressionism, from his breakthrough introduction of the shaped canvas to his distinctive approach to and impact upon questions of materiality, form, and color.
