Event description
Join us to celebrate the opening of 'Thomas J Price. Thoughts Unseen' at Hauser & Wirth Somerset

About this event

Thomas J Price’s multidisciplinary practice confronts preconceived public attitudes towards representation and identity. Price challenges power structures that govern our society whilst examining learnt behaviour that guides our unconscious. His inaugural exhibition with Hauser & Wirth in Somerset, presents two decades of conceptual enquiry spanning film, early sculpture, and the artist’s largest figurative bronze to date. His personal approach readdresses historic narratives and inverts our sense of familiarity, distilling signifiers of status to question the mechanisms in place that reinforce our cultural values.

Using methods of presentation, material and scale, Price explores expectations and assumptions, simultaneously drawing the viewer in whilst considering the space we create between ourselves and the work itself.

'Thomas J Price. Thoughts Unseen' will run alongside 'Eduardo Chillida' at Hauser & Wirth Somerset until 3 January 2022

Entrance to the gallery and garden is free, however we ask visitors to donate to our chosen local charities: Bruton Museum, Somerset Wildlife Trust and STAR (Somerset Trust for Arts & Recreation).

Roth Bar & Grill will be open for dinner reservations and drinks on the terrace. Visit www.rothbarandgrill.co.uk for more details and advance bookings.
