Works by Bourgeois, Chamberlain, Calder, Gorky, Manzoni, Moore, Picasso, Fanzhi and others. Curated by Zhang Enli

Beginning 23 September, Hauser & Wirth presents ‘Drawing On The Mind’, a group exhibition curated by Chinese contemporary artist Zhang Enli. On view through 27 November, the exhibition includes selected works by Modern and Contemporary masters, including Louise Bourgeois, John Chamberlain, Alexander Calder, Arshile Gorky, Piero Manzoni, Henry Moore, Pablo Picasso, David Smith, Zeng Fanzhi, and Zhang Enli himself, revealing the thinking processes of the artists, and offering a glimpse into the subconscious of their minds.

Zhang Enli said, ‘Artists’ sketches and drawings are often regarded as preparatory artworks, and can get overlooked. While in fact, they are significant works that related to the artists’ thinking process, they are the reflections in the artists’ subconscious.’ Echoing the coinciding Henry Moore solo exhibition, Enli added, ‘Compared to his most known sculptures, works in this presentation are more abstract and freehand style, they awaken our curiosity and provide us a new perspective to understanding the artist.’
