Hauser & Wirth Hong Kong is proud to present the first solo exhibition in Greater China of one of the masters of 20th-century modern art: Hans (Jean) Arp (1886 – 1966) was at the forefront of the 20th-century avant garde, and associated strongly with Surrealism and the international Dada movement. Over a period of more than sixty years Arp produced an extraordinarily influential body of work that shifts fluidly between abstraction and representation, and between organic and geometric forms. The list of artists Arp befriended and collaborated with reads like a Who’s Who of the avant garde: Max Ernst, Joan Miró, Amedeo Modigliani, Wassily Kandinsky, Piet Mondrian, Sonia and Robert Delaunay, Francis Picabia, Paul Klee, Kurt Schwitters – to name just a few.

 

Spread over two floors, ‘Arp: Master of 20th Century Sculpture’ explores the development of the artist’s unique formal language in his early woodcuts, cardboard collages, drawings, wood reliefs, and in his bronze sculptures spanning the period from 1918 – 1965.
