Drawing on the Mind
Sep 23, 2021 – Nov 27, 2021
Hauser & Wirth
Hong Kong

Hauser & Wirth presents Drawing on the Mind, a group exhibition curated by Chinese contemporary artist Zhang Enli. The exhibition includes selected works by Modern and Contemporary masters, including Louise Bourgeois, John Chamberlain, Alexander Calder, Arshile Gorky, Piero Manzoni, Henry Moore, Pablo Picasso, David Smith, Zeng Fanzhi, and Zhang Enli himself, revealing the thinking processes of the artists, and offering a glimpse into the subconscious of their minds.

“When an artist takes a pen and makes a few strokes at random, or uses some scraps of wood to stain some color, we call them sketches. Some works are indeed painted by the artist casually, but this kind of carelessness reveals their subconscious, allowing them to overflow the boundaries of their thinking. From some early drawings, we can often find clues about the development of the artist’s later work. These occurrences are the reasons why artists cherish such works on paper and sculptures, as shown in this exhibition.” –Zhang Enli, 2021

    Mudam
    Luxembourg

    We all have ideas of what a contemporary art museum should be. Those who founded Mudam Luxembourg, for example, envisioned a museum that would encompass many aspects of contemporary culture, such as art, design and architecture. While one believes the museum to be a place for the presentation of modern art, others view it as a showcase for Luxembourgish creation. And some see Mudam as a space for collectivity, for openness, for events and an experimental approach. (more…)
