Acerca de


The Oldest Possible Memory was published to accompany an exhibition of one of the most remarkable private collections of twentieth-century art in the world, the Sammlung Hauser and Wirth Collection, and to serve as the first volume documenting it. From Louise Bourgeois to Sarah Lucas, Francis Picabia to Robert Gober, Alexander Calder to Raymond Pettibon and many others, the range and quality of works presented here is astonishing.

About the Author:

Born in 1911 in Paris, Louise Bourgeoiswas raised in a household that famously included her father's mistress, who was also Louise's nanny. She studied philosophy and mathematics before turning to art in 1934, and over the next few years studied at various art academies and in the atelier of Fernand Leger, among others. She moved to New York in 1938 with her new husband, American art historian Robert Goldwater. Her first U.S. showing was in a print exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum, and over the next 50 years, she exhibited consistently in solo and group shows. In 1982, Bourgeois was the subject of the first retrospective ever given to a woman artist at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, and her work has remained in the spotlight ever since.

Belgian painter, sculptor, printmaker, draftsman, filmmaker and poet, Marcel Broodthaers was born in Brussels in 1924. With no artistic training, he turned to visual art in 1964 as an ironic gesture, and spent the 11 remaining years before his death in 1976 establishing himself, in more than 70 one-man exhibitions, as an artist of influential attitude and approach.

Stan Douglas was born in 1960 in Vancouver, Canada, where he lives and works today. His work has been shown in New York at The Studio Museum, Harlem, The Art Institute of Chicago and the Dia Center for the Arts. He is represented in New York by David Zwirner gallery.

Douglas Gordon was born in 1966 in Glasgow, Scotland. By the time he was in his early twenties, he had been to London and back to study at the Slade School of Fine Art, and then become a star of the Glasgow art scene. He came to international prominence in 1993 with i24 Hour Psycho,i in which the title Hitchcock film played out at crawling speed. He has since been the recipient of the Hugo Boss Prize, the Turner Prize, and the Venice Biennaleis Premio, and his work has been seen on five continents. He lives and works in Glasgow and New York.

Sarah Lucas was born in 1962 in London, where she continues to live and work. She studied at Goldsmiths College from 1984 to 87 and is now established as one of the most important British artists working today. Exhibitions of her work have been held at Gladstone Gallery in New York, the Tate Britain, Contemporary Fine Arts in Berlin, and the Freud Museum in London. Lucas exhibited in the 2003 Venice Biennale.

Paul McCarthy was born in 1945 in Salt Lake City, Utah and he currently lives and works in Los Angeles. He studied at the San Francisco Art Institute and the University of Southern California. McCarthy's artwork was brought to public attention in the 1970s with his performance pieces and works in film. Since then he has experimented with sculpture, installation and inflatable objects.

Meret Oppenheim was born in 1913 in Berlin and grew up in Switzerland. As a teenager she moved to Paris, but didn't last long in art school before meeting pioneering Surrealists Alberto Giacometti, Hans Arp and Man Ray, and becoming enmeshed in their world. She was contributing to their shows by 1933, and had her first solo exhibition in 1936 in Basel. An eventual return to school was followed by deep depression and a dry spell of more than 20 years. Reentering public life again in the period that followed, she observed that "Nobody gives you freedom, you have to take it." Oppenheim died in Switzerland in 1985.

Jason Rhoades was born in Newcastle, California, in 1965, and studied at the San Francisco Institute of the Arts and the University of California at Los Angeles, where he received his MFA. Since the early 1990s his work has been exhibited at the 1995 and 1997 Whitney Biennials, the 1997 and 1999 Venice Biennials, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Miami, the Kunstmuseum Bonn, Germany, and the Watari Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo, among many other international galleries and museums.

Pipilotti Rist was born in Switzerland in 1962. She has been exhibiting her work since the mid-80s and has had solo exhibitions at many museums in North America, including the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; SITE Santa Fe; Wadsworth Atheneum, Hartford, Connecticut; and the Museum of Fine Arts, Montreal. Her work is represented in all important collections of contemporary art. One of her most recent projects that garnered international renown was a public video installation in New York City's Times Square during spring 2000. She is represented in New York by Luhring Augustine Gallery.

Roman Signer's work has appeared in the 1977 Venice Biennale and Documenta 8, as well as in numerous group exhibitions in the United States and Europe. The Swiss artistis iaction sculpturesi involve carrying out experiments or events that bear aesthetic results.

Luc Tuymans was born in 1958 in Belgium. Since his appearance at the 2001 Venice Biennale and Documenta 11, he has fast become one of the most important painters of his generation. He lives and works in Antwerp.
