Matthew Wong will participate in ‘Artists for New York’, a major initiative to raise funds in support of a group of pioneering non-profit visual arts organizations across New York City that have been profoundly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The project by Hauser & Wirth brings together dozens of works committed by over 100 foremost artists across generations, from both within and outside of the gallery’s program. The works will be sold to benefit these institutions that have played a significant role in shaping the city’s rich cultural history and will play a critical role in its future recovery.
The coronavirus pandemic has taken an unprecedented toll upon the arts in New York. Facing dire budget shortfalls for fiscal year 2020 caused by necessary and prolonged closures during the pandemic, and expecting further impact upon earned income and contributed revenue in the year ahead, the city’s small and mid-scale institutions are extremely vulnerable at this moment. ‘Artists for New York’ will raise funds to support the recovery needs of fourteen of these organizations: Artists Space, The Bronx Museum of the Arts, Dia Art Foundation, The Drawing Center, El Museo del Barrio, High Line Art, MoMA PS1, New Museum, Public Art Fund, Queens Museum, SculptureCenter, The Studio Museum in Harlem, Swiss Institute, and White Columns.
Beginning 1 October 2020, Hauser & Wirth will present all of the artworks donated to ‘Artists for New York’ to a global audience online. Many of the artworks will also be shown to the public at Hauser & Wirth’s two New York gallery spaces at 542 West 22nd Street and 32 East 69th Street from October 6th – 22nd.

ARCH is pleased to announce Postcards, a solo exhibition by Matthew Wong in collaboration with the Matthew Wong Foundation and Karma, New York. An exhibition of Wong’s paintings was planned to accompany the artist’s summer residency in Greece, which would have begun this past May. The title and concept for Postcards developed from his personal musings in preparation for the show. Postcards features twenty of Wong’s most recent works on paper, depicting both remembered and imagined landscapes.
Postcards will run from September 10th to December 11th, 2020, and will be accompanied by a fully-illustrated publication with an essay by Winnie Wong available for pre-order here. Exhibition opening: September 10th, 2020 (12–9 PM). Hours of operation: Tuesday–Saturday (11AM–6PM) or by appointment. Admission is free.
