Duane HansonThe Serpentine Gallery presents unnerving sculptures by Duane Hanson in his first survey show in London since 1997. Throughout his forty-year career, the late American artist created polyester resin sculptures that portrayed working-class Americans, transforming banal everyday activities into iconographic material. He began his career with controversial works that confronted the viewer with devastating truths, depicting scenes such as soldiers killed in action, police brutality and homelessness. In the 1970s his focus then shifted to more satirical works, featuring everyday people like waitresses and workmen. This exhibition will showcase key works including Football Players (1968), Man with Hand Cart (1975), Housepainter (1984/88) and Policeman (1992/93).

 

About Serpentine Sackler Gallery

The Serpentine Gallery made a significant expansion in September 2013, restoring a former gunpowder depot not far from its original gallery in Kensington Gardens. The Magazine, a Palladian style villa built in 1805 to store arms, has been restored to a design by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Zaha Hadid into an exciting new 900 metre square gallery space.
