Hannah Wilke: 'Art for Life's Sake', Pulitzer Arts Foundation, Missouri

4 June 2021 - 16 January 2022


The Pulitzer Arts Foundation, Missouri, will present the first major survey of Hannah Wilke's work in over ten years.


This career-spanning exhibition encompasses Wilke’s prolific practice from the 1960s to her untimely death in 1993, bringing together works on paper, photography, and video, as well as numerous examples of her diverse sculptures in clay, latex, and other non-traditional materials.


The museum, which includes Japanese architect Tadao Ando's first freestanding public commission, completed in 2001, will feature some 70 works by Wilke, both iconic and rarely exhibited, highlighting a variety of influences, including Surrealism, Abstract Expressionism, Minimalism, and Conceptual Art, offering new perspectives on the critical and influential figure.
