Colin Guillemet's sculpture 'Flamingo in a paper bag' (2013) is more likely to back into you, its eyes being directed at its claws and the ceiling against which they are wedged. Read more...

Gary Kuehn - Gestures and Twists

Häusler Contemporary

Stampfenbachstrasse 59
8006 Zurich
Exhibition
Online since 22 August 2014

The work of Gary Kuehn has always operated in the space located between constraint and freedom. In the 1960s he was among those artists who broke away from the authority of Minimal Art and Abstract Expressionism. Harald Szeemann's legendary Bern exhibition, "When Attitudes Become Form" of 1969, focused on these radical new sensibilities and brought Kuehn's work to Switzerland for the first time. Hauseler Contemporary are delighted to present selections that offer deeper insight into two of the most important series of his works. Read more...
