Event Details

Hauser & Wirth is proud to inaugurate the gallery’s first summer season in St. Moritz with an exhibition of modern and contemporary works by important female artists from the gallery’s roster. Entitled ‘Material Actions’, the exhibition takes its title from a series by the artist Anna Maria Maiolino and refers to the gesture innate in the creative process. The presentation aims to explore the complex discourse of painting, questioning its inherently masculine tradition, and the different ways in which artists in the exhibition have engaged with the genre. All works show traces of the hand whether the artist is expressing geometric form, line or their own subjectivity. The perspectives featured traverse continents and decades including work by the key figures: Rita Ackermann, Ida Applebroog, Mary Heilmann, Jenny Holzer, Luchita Hurtado, Maria Lassnig, Lee Lozano and Anna Maria Maiolino.
