The Full Schimmel: ‘Revolution in the Making: Abstract Sculpture by Women 1947-2016’

Hauser Wirth & Schimmel (HW&S) an international gallery (locations in Zurich, London, Somerset, and New York) has landed in LA with a splash, in a new art space located at 901 East 3rd Street in Los Angeles’ downtown Arts district. HW&S have refurbished a large set of 19th and early 20th Century buildings, The Globe Mills (it once housed a Flour Mill), into 100,000 square feet of exhibition space broken up into several large indoor and outdoor areas. Their inaugural exhibition, “Revolution in the Making: Abstract Sculpture by Women 1947-2016,” is also outsized, featuring nearly 100 works by some 34 artists covering a span of 70 years which remains on view through September 4, 2016. The exhibition is co-curated by Paul Schimmel,(the eponymous Schimmel of HW&S), the former MOCA curator and Jenni Sorkin, Assistant professor of Art History at the UC Santa Barbara (more on them later).TO READ MORE CLICK HERE….
