Josephsohn / Märkli: A Conjunction
The exhibition Josephsohn / Märkli: A Conjunction at Hauser & Wirth Somerset includes nearly 100 drawings which explore the individual practices and close working relationship of Peter Märkli and Hans Josephsohn that was to culminate in the construction of La Congiunta at Giornico (1992), a dedicated space for Josephsohn’s sculpture.
The exhibition is curated by Niall Hobhouse of Drawing Matter.
This is a free event, no booking necessary.
