Hauser & Wirth announces representation of the François Morellet Estate

François Morellet (1926 – 2016), a prolific self-taught painter, sculptor, and installation artist, developed a radical approach to geometric abstraction during a career spanning more than six decades. His object-based paintings, neon and architectural installations, and site-specific works explored the creative potential of kinetic and pre-established systems, challenging the viewer’s understanding of perception and the physical picture plane. Working primarily with basic geometric forms, Morellet was committed to a methodology of rigorous objectivity and personal detachment.

The gallery's international representation of the artist will be in collaboration with the Paris-based gallery, kamel mennour. An exhibition of the Morellet’s work will be presented in New York in January 2021.
