Pushwagner: Soft City

Since the 1960s, the Norwegian artist Hariton Pushwagner (Oslo 1940) has produced a body of work with a gloomy vision of the future. Following a productive period, Pushwagner’s life and career suffered a downward spiral in the 1980s and 1990s due to the artist’s dependence on drink and drugs. He has enjoyed a revival since 2008, followed by a solo exhibition in MK Gallery and Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen. MK Gallery director Anthony Spira gives a short introduction on the work of this mysterious artist.

Lee Lozano with Dr Jo Applin

Jo Applin gives an insight into both Lee Lozano’s life and her work, contextualizing her practice and highlighting her response to the constraints of constitutional systems, gender dynamics, power, money, and politics. Created in 1962–1963, the early paintings and drawings on view at Hauser & Wirth Somerset use airplanes as a central image and can be considered as examples of the artist’s passionate exploration of creative energy in its purist form. This focused body of early work exposes a complex and deeply intimate inner life grappling with one-sided gender and societal dichotomies, while other works display a form of ferocious humour and playfulness, exploiting the rhetoric of exaggeration to its most cogent effect. Her raw expressionist brush strokes create powerful works imbued with a very personal iconography, including genitals, religious symbols, tools and body parts. Lozano’s short lived but influential career remains a source of fascination, lauded by Lucy Lippard as the foremost female conceptual artist of her era in New York.

Nicolas Party: In the Studio

Youtube

Born in Lausanne in 1980, Nicolas Party is a figurative painter who has achieved critical admiration for bold and otherworldly landscapes, portraits, and still lifes that simultaneously celebrate and challenge conventions of representational painting. His works are primarily created in soft pastel, an idiosyncratic choice of medium in the 21st century, and one that allows for exceptional degrees of intensity and fluidity in his depictions of objects both natural and manmade. Transforming these objects into abstracted, biomorphic shapes, Party suggests deeper connections and meanings. His unique visual language has coalesced in a universe of fantastical characters and motifs where perspective is heightened and skewed to uncanny effect. Nicolas Party is now represented by Hauser & Wirth, in collaboration with Xavier Hufkens in Brussels, Kaufmann Repetto in Milan, Modern Institute in Glasgow, Galerie Gregor Staiger in Zurich, and Karma in New York. Party’s first project with Hauser & Wirth will be a solo exhibition in Los Angeles in 2020.
