Philip Guston
Painter 1957-1967

 

Although much attention has been paid in recent years to Philip Guston’s figurative painting of the late 1960s and ’70s, this new book focuses on the decade preceding that period, published to accompany Hauser & Wirth’s first presentation of the work of Philip Guston. Part of the New York School, which included many abstract expressionists, Guston’s influence on his contemporaries and the following generation of painters is considered quite significant. This book focuses specifically on the period beginning in the late 1950s and spanning nearly a decade until the artist’s return to figuration in the late 1960s, featuring nearly 90 paintings and drawings from the artist’s abstract expressionist period, many of which have not been shown in public for decades, presenting a major survey of a seminal phase in the artist’s oeuvre.

This publication features an expanded chronology on the artist, which includes archival material, historic installation views, conversations with Guston and other selected texts (by the artist himself) from the exhibition’s time period. The book concludes with a section of 50 of Guston’s ‘pure’ drawings completed in the late 1960s.

Organised and edited by Paul Schimmel.

Hans Arp
Ovi Bimba - The Zurich works

Hans Arp was one of the most innovative and influential artists of the 20th century. With a playful hand and a multifaceted practice that included sculpture, relief, painting, collage and poetry, Arp juggled the dominant art currents of Cubism, Surrealism, and Constructivism, combining seemingly contradictory geometric and organic formal idioms with the artistic “-isms” of his epoch.

In 1916, Arp was invited by Hugo Ball to take part in the Cabaret Voltaire at Spiegelgasse 1 in Zurich. The now iconic event marked the birth of Dadaism and the beginnings of a long overdue breakthrough for Arp. “Ovi Bimba” is a revelatory publication exploring these early years of Arp’s practice, focusing on his time in Zurich during the birth of Dada to his sculptures in the 1940s and 1950s.

The publication positions these diverse pieces alongside those of Arp’s fellow artists, including his wife, Sophie Taeuber-Arp.

Featuring texts by renowned Dada scholar, Juri Steiner, and over eighty beautifully reproduced colour plates.

Published with Hauser & Wirth, Zurich/London/New York.
