Shen Xin: Brine Lake (A New Body)
Through July 3, 2022
For their first US museum solo exhibition, Twin Cities–based artist Shen Xin (b. 1990, Chengdu) debuts a new video and sound installation following its 2021 premiere at the Gwangju Biennale in South Korea. Brine Lake (A New Body) (2020) meditates on the intersections between extractive economies, migrant populations, statelessness, and transnational identities.

Curators: Curated by Victoria Sung, associate curator, Visual Arts; and William Hernández Luege, curatorial assistant, Visual Arts

David Hockney: People, Places & Things
Through August 21, 2022
First gaining attention in the 1960s with his exuberant portraits and landscapes, David Hockney (UK, b. 1937) remains one of the most celebrated British artists of his generation. He is also a key contributor to the development of art in Los Angeles, one of his adopted homes. Drawing upon the Walker’s deep holdings of Hockney’s work, this exhibition presents a broad selection of the artist’s prints, paintings, drawings, and recent digital works.

Curator: Siri Engberg, senior curator and director, Visual Arts

Carolyn Lazard: Long Take
February 12–December 11, 2022
This Walker-organized exhibition marks the first US solo museum presentation of the work of New York/Philadelphia–based artist and writer Carolyn Lazard (US, b. 1987). Long Take is a newly conceived installation that responds to the legacy of dance for the camera, considered through the lens of accessibility as a creative tool. Using text and sound rather than moving image, Lazard encourages us to think about ways that artworks are made accessible as well as the often-unseen networks of care, labor, and friendship that make collaborative endeavors possible.

Carolyn Lazard: Long Take is co-commissioned by the Walker Art Center; the Institute of Contemporary Art, University of Pennsylvania; and Nottingham Contemporary.

Curator: Pavel Pyś, curator, Visual Arts

Liz Larner: Don’t put it back like it was
April 30–September 4, 2022
For the past three decades, Los Angeles–based artist Liz Larner (US, b. 1960) has explored the material and social possibilities of sculpture in innovative and surprising ways. Today she is one of the most influential artists of her generation engaged with the medium. Larner’s use of materials ranges from the traditional—such as bronze, porcelain, glass, or stainless steel—to the unexpected: bacterial cultures, surgical gauze, sand, or leather. The artist selects each medium for its physical or chemical properties as well as for social and historical associations. Taking direction from these materials, she creates works that can be delicate or aggressive, meticulously crafted or unruly and formless.

Liz Larner: Don’t put it back like it was is organized by the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis and SculptureCenter, New York.

Curator: Mary Ceruti, executive director, Walker Art Center. The New York presentation is organized by Kyle Dancewicz, interim director, SculptureCenter.

Pao Houa Her
July 28, 2022–January 22, 2023
Pao Houa Her (b. 1980, Laos; lives and works in Minnesota) is known for her powerful photographs documenting the Hmong diaspora in the United States. The artist’s body of work represents a narrative extension of her family’s memories of fleeing Laos as well as a long-term engagement with telling the stories of ethnic Hmong communities that formed in the late 1970s and 1980s following the Vietnam War.

Curators: Victoria Sung, associate curator, Visual Arts; with Matthew Villar Miranda, curatorial fellow, Visual Arts
