Ed Clark’s solo exhibition at Hauser & Wirth<> London will plunge viewers into the depths of material and colour, where paint itself is the primary subject. Clark was a pioneer of the New York School in the 1950s, known for pushing painting<> beyond hard-edged Abstraction, and became the first artist to exhibit a shaped canvas. ‘Without a Doubt’ is a deep-dive into the artist’s wide-ranging exploration of paint, marks his first solo presentation in the UK, following the artist’s inclusion in the seminal ‘Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power 1963-1983’ at Tate Modern<>.<> Exhibition: Victor Vasarely: ‘Universe’ Location: Selfridges Dates: until 31 March 2022 [Fabrice Lepeltier and Fondation Vasarely] Victor Vasarely, Okta cor (1973).
