Jason Rhoades: Drive | Catherine Goodman: New Works

For Jason Rhoades, the car was a vehicle of artistic pursuit, both readymade sculpture and American idol. Starting 27 February, Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles will dedicate an entire gallery at its Downtown Arts District location to a yearlong exploration of Rhoades’ art via the subject of cars and car culture. Known for the driving imagination and ambition of his work, as well, at times, its reckless provocation and overwhelming materiality, Rhoades (1965–2006) was a world builder for whom the making of sculptures and the creation of narratives were intertwined. His epic-scaled installations made him a force of the international art world in the 1990s while he was based in Los Angeles. ‘DRIVE,’ will unfold over a series of thematic iterations, an ever-changing exhibition of Rhoades’ sculptures, drawings, videos and multiples—enriched by archival materials, public programs and contemporary perspectives. ____ For her first solo exhibition in Los Angeles, opening 27 February, London-based artist Catherine Goodman CBE will present all new paintings at Hauser & Wirth’s South Gallery in Downtown LA. This will be Goodman’s first body of predominantly abstract works, marking a distinct development for the artist, whose signature dynamic surfaces and energetic brushstrokes will occupy some of her largest canvases to date. In a career spanning over four decades, Goodman’s artistic process is rooted in a daily practice of observational drawing sourced from life, film and old master paintings. In these striking new compositions, Goodman continues her longstanding exploration of memory, place and the mystery of the unconscious.
