Nicolas Party: Sottobosco

Feb 13 – May 25, 2020

Nicolas Party’s candy-colored art may remind viewers of computer-generated objects in a virtual space. Working in pastel, he plays with color and form, allowing strange worlds to spring up like mutant mirages. In an exhibition of murals, sculpture, and a large installation, Hauser & Wirth showcases Party’s not-quite Symbolist, not-quite Surrealist vision. —E.C.
