Fergus McCaffrey announces the death of luminary Mono-ha artist Noriyuki Haraguchi (1946–2020)

The Japanese artist rose to prominence in the late 1960s through the development of painting and sculpture that engaged with cultural and environmental issues through a post-minimalist vocabulary. Born in 1946, the artist spent most of his life in the town of Yokosuka, Japan, the home port of the US Navy’s 7th Fleet. Located south of the massively industrialized city of Kawasaki, the environment indelibly shaped Haraguchi’s aesthetic and instinct for pure construction. A special tribute to the artist is now available on the gallery's new digital platform.

Gray hosts a poetry reading by Jim Dine

His diverse body of work defies such easy categorization, however, as it is also understood as seminal to Neo-Dada and Neo-Expressionism. An innovator throughout his long career, Dine is first and foremost known as a visual artist, yet he has accompanied his vast career with an extensive body of poetry that is driven by the same energy that powers his painting and sculptures.

Hauser & Wirth presents DRAWINGS FOR DISTANCED FIGURES, an online exhibition by George Condo

The exhibition features a new group of drawings by George Condo which are related to his most recent painting series ‘Distanced Figures.’ Made during the last three weeks, in the artist’s home studio in New York state, these portrait drawings are evocative of the experience of isolation during this unsettling period of social distance.

Hauser & Wirth will donate 10 percent of profits from online exhibitions, including 'George Condo. Drawings for Distanced Figures', to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for WHO. This is part of a new philanthropic initiative #artforbetter, through which Hauser & Wirth will provide charitable support to both global and local causes.
