Centered around a core belief in education, Hauser & Wirth is committed to public engagement programs that aim to instigate a dialogue between the works on view and a diverse audience. Hauser & Wirth presents dynamic family, youth, and adult programs inspired by the gallery’s artists, including specialist and curator-led talks, seminars and screenings.
As pioneering, multipurpose art centers, Hauser & Wirth Somerset and Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles both emphasize a broad range of activities, including school and university programs, family sessions and community outreach. In addition, Hauser & Wirth Somerset hosts an immersive artist-in-residence program.
Hauser & Wirth is delighted to provide free online resources for teachers, students and members of the public, to support visits to our galleries and facilitate further research around Hauser & Wirth’s artists, exhibitions and events.

Hauser & Wirth Somerset has created Arthaus, a group specifically for young people aged 15 – 19 years old who are interested in learning more about art and architecture, and who wish to meet others with similar interests. The group meets at the gallery once a month, where they have the opportunity to meet our artists, gallery team and specialists in a series of events such as workshops, conversations and talks.
Hauser & Wirth supports an immersive artist-in-residence program, which invites artists to spend an extended period of time in Bruton in order to draw inspiration from Durslade Farm, the local culture and the surrounding landscape.
