Hauser & Wirth presents Serialities, a group show organized by Olivier Renaud-Clément. The exhibition will focus on the notion of seriality and repetition in artists' narratives and will include photographs, drawings, and sculptures. The soul of the exhibition is said to be the work of German portrait and documentary photographer August Sander (1874–1964), known for his monumental project entitled "People of the 20th Century." The Sanders' archive is comprised of more than 600 photographs shot between 1910 and the early 1950s. As you can guess, it is quite a provocative collection. The exhibition is bound to cause waves, and is surely not one to miss. Visitors to Serialities are also welcome to visit a special designated Book Lab on the gallery's third floor where a curated selection of catalogs will allow one to delve into information on each artist reprsented in the exhibition.

Artists in the exhibition include: Yuji Agematsu, Carl Andre, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Sophie Calle, Liz Deschenes, Isa Genzken, Eva Hesse, Roni Horn, On Kawara, Robert Kinmont, Louise Lawler, Zoe Leonard, Sherrie Levine, Sol LeWitt, Paul McCarthy, Roman Opalka, Andrea Robbins and Max Becher, August Sander, Karin Sander, Mira Schendel, Cindy Sherman, David Smith, Ian Wallace, and Mark Wallinger.

Hauser & Wirth is located at 548 West 22nd Street, NYC 10011.
