Ellen Gallagher: Accidental Records

November 4, 2017 11:00 am - January 28, 2018 6:00 pm

Opening reception: Friday, 3 November, 6 – 8 pm

Hauser & Wirth is pleased to present the work of Ellen Gallagher for her first solo exhibition in Los Angeles. Opening on 4 November, ‘Ellen Gallagher: Accidental Records’ presents new paintings, drawings, and film installations that continue the artist’s exploration of the complex histories of the Black Atlantic and the afterlives of the Middle Passage. Widely associated with a resurgence in this diasporic critical space, Gallagher has developed her own genre of history painting which makes us question our geographies. The layered surfaces of her works become a kind of dead reckoning, evoking, in the artist’s words ‘the way sailors mark their location at sea, determined by return.’
