Curated by Douglas Dreishpoon
Hauser & Wirth presents an exhibition dedicated to the synergistic relationship that existed between visual artists and composers living in New York City during the years following World War II. Curated by Douglas Dreishpoon, Chief Curator Emeritus at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, the exhibition features works by Louise Bourgeois, John Cage, Morton Feldman, Philip Guston, Franz Kline, Joan Mitchell, and David Smith – mavericks who pushed the boundaries of their respective mediums to new realms of abstraction. Part of a larger coterie of creative individuals who shared a common ethos, these artists naturally sought each other out, socializing, exhibiting, and supporting each other’s ideas. Paintings, sculptures, prints, and drawings will be contextualized by a selection of musical scores and ephemera.
