Hauser & Wirth is a contemporary art gallery with locations worldwide. ‘More paintings about poets and food’ is the gallery’s first New York exhibition devoted to the internationally admired London-based artist, Djordje Ozbolt. The exhibition includes new paintings, sculptures and works on paper by the artist, and is on view at Hauser & Wirth’s 69th Street location through 21 February 2015.

Ozbolt is influenced by poetry, and incorporates stream of consciousness and free association play into his practice, while addressing varied themes of pop culture, politics, fantasy, and self-exploration. The open mic night is a celebration and cross-pollination of art forms. Poets and spoken word artists will perform in the gallery space, surrounded by the surrealist, absurd, and humorous works of Djordje Ozbolt. Join us for an exciting evening of poetry, art, and conversation.

The Ozbolt exhbition runs from Jan. 14 to Feb. 21, 2015.
