About this Event

Our current exhibition 'Henry Taylor' runs until 6 June 2021.

For his inaugural exhibition with Hauser & Wirth, American artist Henry Taylor takes over all five galleries in Somerset to present a major body of sculptural work and paintings.

Throughout his four-decade long career, Taylor has amassed a staggering body of highly personal work rooted in the people and communities closest to him, often manifested alongside poignant historical or pop-cultural references. Through a process he describes as ‘hunting and gathering,’ Taylor transports us into imagined realities that interrogate the breadth of the human condition, social movements and political structures.

Henry Taylor lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. Taylor’s work is currently featured in US group exhibitions ‘i’m yours: Encounters with Art in Our Times’, at the Institute of Contemporary Art Boston, Boston MA and ‘Grief and Grievance: Art and Mourning in America’ at New Museum, New York NY. The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles CA is preparing a major survey exhibition of his work for 2022.

The Oudolf Field, our perennial meadow created by Dutch landscape designer Piet Oudolf, is also open for visitors to enjoy.
