Hauser & Wirth to Display a Rare Exhibition of Museum-Loaned Works by Eva Hesse

    With her use of alternative forms and materials, Eva Hesse revolutionized the language of sculpture. With her use of latex, Fiberglas, and industrial plastics, Hesse challenged the hard-edged, manufactured aesthetic of the minimalist movement of her day.

    Almost half a century after her groundbreaking oeuvre was exhibited for the first time in 1968, it remains as powerful now as it was then. In the decades following Hesse’s death in 1970, some fifteen exhibitions have been held, a testament to her ongoing relevance.

    As of 2nd of May, Hauser & Wirth will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the estate’s representation by the gallery by spotlighting Hesse’s remarkable achievements in ‘Eva Hesse. Five Sculptures.’ In collaboration with art historian and critic Briony Fer, this exhibition brings together five of Hesse’s most celebrated large-scale works made from 1967 to 1969, all on loan from major American museums. Rosen has been an adviser to the Hesse estate for many years.

    Hesse’s materially experimental and psychologically charged sculptures will be exhibited on the ground floor of Hauser & Wirth’s gallery on West 22nd Street.
