‘Hans (Jean) Arp’ at Hauser Wirth & Schimmel
This historical exhibition of works by French-German artist Hans Arp (1886 – 1966) will be the first Los Angeles solo presentation devoted to his groundbreaking achievements. Arp was a radical innovator and pioneer of the avant-garde in the first half of the 20th century. His practice spanned painting, drawing, collage, sculpture, and avant-garde in the first half of the 20th century. His practice spanned painting, drawing, collage, sculpture, and Constructivism, and Expressionism. This selection draws together Arp’s explorational bas-reliefs in wood, paper, bronze, and marble from the 1920s to the 1960s to trace an ongoing dialogue between the two- and three- dimensional, and the transition from flat form to sculptural object. With its characteristic biomorphic forms, Arp’s object language influenced many of his contemporaries and successors such as Kurt Schwitters or Joan Miró. The comprehensive exhibition coincides with the 30th anniversary of the acclaimed international survey ‘The Universe of Jean Arp’, which concluded its global six-city tour at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco CA. The exhibition is curated by art historian Dr Dieter Buchhart.
