Art & The World

Art and the World is the evolution of Joelle McTigue’s Twitter account (@joellemctigue) that began in 2009 to share events, artists, art spaces, and galleries in the Los Angeles art scene. While covering the city, its art world matured from old-school cool and hipster independent spaces to blue-chip gallery rows.

Contemporary art has adapted in 2020 with virtual worlds. Explore art fairs, talks, and exhibitions as we virtually connect art and the world.

Rashid Johnson: Waves

Hauser & Wirth London

6 Oct – 23 Dec 2020

Waves reveals the constant evolution of Johnson’s work and his ability to confront the spaces we negotiate. Jumping off from his Anxious Men series, the exhibition centers around expanded ceramic tile mosaics and paintings that render escapism and anxiety. “I am interested in how these recurring themes are able to pivot in order to speak to the times we live in,” Rashid Johnson.

The exhibition is at both Hauser & Wirth’s London locations. Due to Covid restrictions, you need to register on Hauser & Wirth’s website to visit.
