Exhibitionin New York, NY / United States
Hauser & Wirth presents ‘A Modest Proposal’, featuring work by artists Lucas Blalock, Naotaka Hiro, Sanya Kantarovsky, Nicola L, Tala Madani, and Jakub Julian Ziolkowski who humorously critique our relationship to the bodily and abject. The exhibition takes its title from Jonathan Swift’s satirical essay written in 1729, in which he comments on the extreme poverty and famine in Ireland. His solution to these dire conditions is simple: eat the children. ‘A Modest Proposal’ will be on view in the Showroom at the gallery’s West 18th Street location.
