Tischan Hsu: Liquid Circuit at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles


Tim Marlow, director and CEO of London's Design Museum, chooses the best exhibitions to see this month, presented by Regent Seven Seas Cruises.

Tishan Hsu: Liquid Circuit

Hammer Museum, Los Angeles
26 January–9 April

Tishan Hsu, Autopsy, 1988. Karin and Peter Haas Collection, Zurich.

LA’s Hammer Museum is presenting the exciting work of Tischan Hsu. Entitled Liquid Circuit, the exhibition will draw clear links between the themes and ideas explored by the artist throughout his career, and those tackled by the artists of today. It will demonstrate how Tsu has always been ahead of his time in regards to the concerns of his practice, exploring pertinent issues including the impact of advances in technological and artificial intelligence on humans, from as early as the 1980s.

Re-introducing Hsu and his output to a contemporary audience, the exhibition will bring together approximately 30 important sculptures, wall reliefs, drawings and media works. It will celebrate his ability as an artist to not only interrogate and examine issues of the time but to foresee and create prescient work.

Tishan Hsu: Liquid Circuit is organized by SculptureCenter, New York, and curated by Sohrab Mohebbi. The Hammer’s presentation is organized by Aram Moshayedi, Robert Soros, curator, with Nicholas Barlow, curatorial assistant, and is on view from 26 January–9 April.
