Ellen Gallagher: Accidental Records at Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles

Opening on 3 November, ‘Ellen Gallagher. Accidental Records’ is the gallery’s first Los Angeles solo exhibition with the artist. On view will be new paintings, drawings, and film installations that continue Gallagher’s exploration of the complex histories of the Black Atlantic and the afterlives of the Middle Passage. Widely associated with a resurgence in this diasporic critical space, Gallagher has developed her own genre of history painting which makes us question our geographies. The slowly layered surfaces of her works become a kind of dead reckoning, the way sailors mark their location at sea, determined by return.
