Ian Wallace at Hauser & Wirth Zürich

27 August – 5 November 2011
Hauser & Wirth Zürich
Opening Friday 26 August, 6 – 8 pm

Hauser & Wirth is pleased to present an exhibition of four new groups of work by Vancouver-based artist Ian Wallace. With these works, Wallace takes the discourses of painting, sculpture and architecture and unites them within a single framework. As a development from the literary, expressive themes of his previous works, Wallace focuses on a ‘classical’ construction influenced by the compositions of modernism and minimalism in art and architecture.

A pioneering figure of photoconceptualism, Wallace is best known for his works that combine photography and painting, a technique he has explored for the past three decades. Born in England and living and working in Vancouver since 1953, Ian Wallace has played an influential role in the Vancouver art scene not only through his art, but also through his teaching. Wallace was a professor at the University of British Columbia (1967 – 1970) and at the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design, Vancouver (1972 – 1998).
