Rita Ackermann’s current solo exhibition at Hauser & Wirth New York is the artist’s first exhibition with the gallery in New York. The show is titled Negative Muscle and presents seventeen paintings made between the years of 2010 and 2013. It shows Rita Ackermann’s evolution over the past three years and takes its title from the first painting Ackermann made following a collaboration with filmmaker Harmony Korine. The centerpiece of the exhibition is a group of six new paintings from the series Fire by Days. Rita Ackermann was born in 1968 in Budapest, Hungary. She currently lives and works in New York.
