Opening in Spring 2024, White Cube presents a solo exhibition of works by the late artist Richard Hunt (1935–2023). One of the leading American sculptors of the 20th century, this is the gallery’s first presentation of Hunt's work since announcing representation in November 2023.
With a profound fascination for biological science and the natural world, working predominantly in metal, Richard Hunt’s hybrid sculptures are characterized by dualities – that of the natural and the industrial, the surreal and the abstract, the geometric and the organic.
This show will bring together sculptures from the artist's early career, with a focus on his 1971 solo exhibition at MoMA, New York, which was, at the time, the first retrospective for an African American sculptor at the museum.
Richard Hunt passed away on 16 December 2023. A celebration of his life and art will also take place in the Spring. Details to be announced.
