It's a pretty common theme in Juxtapoz interviews over our 26 years: the influence and appreciation of Philip Guston is remarkable. And what is even more astounding is that the works that so many artists find inspiring are from a period of time where Guston was finding critical rejection of his works. As he gradually moved on from Absract Expressionism and into more figurative style works, here is where you find many of the influences we see in many contemporary artists we show in our magazine. 

Beginning 30 July, Hauser & Wirth will present Philip Guston. What Endures, an online exhibition that responds directly to our present moment of overwhelming uncertainty by reflecting upon pain, endurance, and, ultimately, hope for the future, through the work of Philip Guston. Featuring works selected by Musa Mayer, the artist’s daughter and President of The Guston Foundation, the exhibition includes thirteen important paintings made between 1971 and 1976, a time of social and political turmoil in the United States with parallels to the current state of crisis in America and the world at large.
