Exhibition - John Chamberlain The Poetics of Scale

Exhibition - John Chamberlain The Poetics of Scale

This exhibition pairs John Chamberlain’s early poetry from his year at Black Mountain College with his Gondolas and Tonks from the 1980s, epitomizing the artist’s poetic approach to language, materials and scale.

Hauser & Wirth Monaco’s exhibition will be the first time Chamberlain’s poetry will be shown publicly, illuminating a sensitive and little-known aspect of his practice produced at Black Mountain College in the 1950s. This interlude had a profound impact on the artist—he would later state, ‘My teachers were Kline, de Kooning, Charles Olson.’ Chamberlain would later become known for the creativity and poetry of his titles, which, like his sculptures, were assembled based on ‘fit’. He wrote words on cards, trying different combinations to create beautiful compositions.
