Join us to celebrate the public opening of ‘GRUPPENAUSSTELLUNG’, our new group exhibition at Hauser & Wirth Somerset.

Roth Bar & Grill will be providing refreshments in the cloister courtyard from 12 – 3 pm. The gallery and garden will remain open as usual from 10 am – 5 pm. 

Be part of the activation of our new Education Lab, a collaborative project with the gallery’s global green teams. Inspired by the exhibition and the work of artist Mika Rottenberg and Pipilotti Rist, members of the community are invited to explore the interactive space that embraces our commitment to environmental sustainability.

Tickets to the opening celebrations are free, and include entry to the exhibition and Education Lab, but we recommend registering in advance.

About ‘GRUPPENAUSSTELLUNG’GRUPPENAUSSTELLUNG’ is a celebration of Hauser & Wirth’s Swiss heritage through a playful presentation of over 20 artists, including Phyllida Barlow, Martin Creed, Nicole Eisenman, Isa Genzken, Rodney Graham, Richard Hamilton, Mary Heilmann, Camille Henrot, Jenny Holzer, Richard Jackson, Rashid Johnson, Allison Katz, Paul McCarthy, Jason Rhoades, Pipilotti Rist, Dieter Roth, Björn Roth, Mika Rottenberg, Anri Sala, Cindy Sherman, Roman Signer, Lorna Simpson, Alina Szapocznikow, Franz West and David Zink Yi.

The multidisciplinary exhibition is inspired by the notion of a traditional Kunsthalle, conceived as a place to showcase groundbreaking art and explore contemporary issues with a broad audience. The entire site takeover provides a platform for discovery and interaction, extending to all five galleries, outdoor sculpture and a collaborative events program with the Roth Bar & Grill. The exhibition will evolve in three parts over the course of seven months, featuring immersive installations, solo presentations and iconic video works. Alongside the exhibition, the Education Lab takes its starting point from Mika Rottenberg’s commitment to environmentally sustainable creative practices, developed by the gallery’s green teams globally.

GRUPPENAUSSTELLUNG’ is on view at Hauser & Wirth Somerset through Monday 1 January 2024.

Please be advised that photographs will be taken at this event for use on the Hauser & Wirth website, social media and in other marketing materials.
