Hauser & Wirth will present Resilience: Philip Guston in 1971, showcasing work from a crucial year of Philip Guston’s career. The solo exhibition, his first in Los Angeles in over 50 years, will feature works from both the Nixon drawings and the Roma paintings— two of his major series.

“These figurative paintings and narrative satirical drawings bear witness to an artist at the height of his powers, exquisitely responsive to his world,” says Musa Mayer, Guston’s daughter and curator of the exhibition.

Resilience: Philip Guston in 1971 will begin September 14, 2019 and will run through January 5, 2020.
