URHere with ConciergeQ's Tasha Dwhaj at Hauser & Wirth's "Philip Guston 1969-1979" Exhibition in New York City. Beginning September 9, 2021, Hauser & Wirth New York will present ‘Philip Guston. 1969 – 1979,’ an exhibition focused on the breakthrough figuration that emerged in the final decade of the 20th century master’s career. Including paintings never before exhibited, the show brings together eighteen masterworks created after the artist turned away from abstraction to assert an unprecedented new figural language. While critics denounced his dramatic shift toward dark, cartoon-like imagery, the paintings of Guston’s last years are today considered milestones of modern art. They display not only great technical mastery, but uncompromising courage in directly addressing the injustices of American society. Made at the height of his creative life, the paintings on view attest to Guston’s enduring influence and astonishing relevance to contemporary artists and the public now.
