On 8 July 2021, Hauser & Wirth announced British sculptor Thomas J Price will be joining their roster. His first exhibition with the gallery will show in Somerset in October.
Price spoke with Ocula Magazine back in 2019 about the development of his sculptural practice, the role of the Black male body, and his past performance, Licked, where he licked an entire gallery wall over three days.
'Men have often been depicted as strong authoritative, and resolved, historically, and I always wanted to reveal the inner workings of their emotional worlds'.—Thomas J Price.
