a platform for immersive discovery and interaction

 

GRUPPENAUSSTELLUNG, presented by Hauser & Wirth (find more here), offers an optimized platform for immersive discovery and interaction. Attendees can expect to encounter mesmerizing neon installations, intricate suspended sculptures, vibrant posters, and thought-provoking video exhibits.

 

At Hauser & Wirth Somerset, artists play a central role in cultivating an experimental ethos that encourages new connections and inclusive art experiences. The exhibition showcases renowned artists like Martin Creed, Rashid Johnson, and Pipilotti Rist, many of whom have participated in the gallery’s longstanding residency program in Bruton. Living and working in this vibrant community, these artists draw inspiration from Durslade Farm and the picturesque Somerset landscape. As part of the immersive experience, visitors will also encounter a series of captivating exhibition posters created by the current artist-in-residence, Allison Katz. Katz’s playful approach to designing posters explores the realms of typography, language, and graphics, while delving into profound themes such as consumption, desire, and memory.

 

The complete list of artists features Phyllida Barlow, Martin Creed, Nicole Eisenman, Isa Genzken, Rodney Graham, Richard Hamilton, Mary Heilmann, Camille Henrot, Jenny Holzer, Richard Jackson, Rashid Johnson, Allison Katz, Paul McCarthy, Jason Rhoades, Pipilotti Rist, Dieter Roth, Björn Roth, Mika Rottenberg, Anri Sala, Cindy Sherman, Roman Signer, Lorna Simpson, Alina Szapocznikow, Franz West and David Zink Yi.
