About

Our new space at Luftgässlein 4 in Basel’s historic central cultural district occupies a former silk ribbon factory built in the 1880s and comprises a ground floor exhibition space and showroom. The gallery is under the direction of Carlo Knöll who joined Hauser & Wirth as Senior Director in September 2023.

Building upon the extensive experience of our international team, Knöll will further develop the gallery’s engagement with historic and modern masters and foster relationships with collectors and artists’ estates. ‘Vilhelm Hammershøi. Silence’ is the first in a series of historic exhibitions being developed by Knöll for the gallery.
