For his first exhibition with Hauser & Wirth and first New York City solo presentation in nearly a decade, Italian artist Roberto Cuoghi will populate the ground floor of the gallery’s 22nd Street building with an entirely new body of work. One of the most celebrated, yet enigmatic, artists of his generation, Cuoghi is known for an exacting, almost obsessive, research- and process-driven practice that spans the full spectrum of styles and genres. ‘Pepsis’* will debut works from Cuoghi’s ongoing, all-consuming project of the same name—a complex, multi-faceted investigation initiated in early 2020 after a fully immersive stay in New York City. Much of this body of work focuses on a rarely explored aspect of his ever-expanding practice, a medium infrequently associated with Cuoghi but central in contemporary art discourse now: painting.

The Rubin Museum of Art is thrilled to announce its schedule of exhibitions and programs in 2023. The year begins with the launch of the Rubin’s largest institutional project to date, Project Himalayan Art, an initiative to provide global access to resources promoting a broader understanding of Himalayan art.

Live programming and the seventh issue of the Rubin Museum’s annual publication, Spiral magazine, available in print and online, will further expand on these themes. Throughout the year the Rubin will host its first ever series of professional development residencies for artists, museum professionals, and scholars who live and work in the Himalayan region. And in the fall of 2023 the Buddhist monastery Itumbaha in Kathmandu, in partnership with the Rubin Museum and Lumbini University, will unveil its permanent display galleries for objects in the monastery complex.

Solo Exhibition by Artist Suchitra Mattei: Herself as Another at Hollis Taggart

 

 

 

Suchitra Mattai, Herself as another, 2022; Acrylic, gouache, cord, trim, earrings, and family necklace, 66 x 72 in. (167.6 x 182.9 cm)

Hollis Taggart will open its door to artist Suchitra Matta’s first solo exhibition, Herself as Another. Mattai’s multidisciplinary practice explores, unravels, and re-imagines commonly understood and entrenched histories and cultural perceptions. With her newest work, Mattai brings her incisive critique to an examination of the way society “others” populations that it deems different, placing particular focus on the experiences of immigrants and those dealing with mental illness. Through more than a dozen mix-media paintings, fiber sculptures, and installations, Mattai grapples with the fears and mythologies that drive people to ostracize and the impacts those actions have on the “other.” Herself as Another follows Mattai’s breakout New York presentation in Hollis Taggart’s two-person show, History Reclaimed in 2020, and the artist formally joining the gallery in January 2021. The exhibition will remain on view through March 12, 2022, at the gallery’s primary location in Chelsea at 521 W. 26th Street.

On 16 November, Hauser & Wirth New York will present a newly discovered, never before exhibited, painting by Arshile Gorky. ‘Untitled (Virginia Summer)’ was uncovered in 2020 during conservation and research for Gorky’s catalogue raisonné. It was discovered directly beneath ‘The Limit,’ attached to the same, original stretcher that Gorky used when the painting first left his studio in 1947. Hidden for over 70 years, ‘Untitled (Virginia Summer)’ is as rich and as vibrant as when it was first created. ‘Beyond The Limit’ will present both paintings to the public together for the first time, along with works on paper directly related to the recently discovered composition, and a new book from Hauser & Wirth Publishers featuring illuminating essays by Parker Field, Managing Director of the Arshile Gorky Foundation, and Pepe Karmel, Associate Professor of Art History at New York University. The exhibition, and accompanying publication, provide fresh insight into the development of Gorky’s practice during the last years of his life, when his abstract imagery and style reached a confident maturity.
