About

In 1992, Hauser & Wirth opened its first public space in the first-floor apartment of an Art Deco villa at Sonneggstrasse 84 in Zurich. The gallery’s first exhibitions were ‘Alexander Calder: Mobiles and Gouaches’ and ‘Joan Miró: Sculptures and Paintings’.

Hauser & Wirth then approached Nam June Paik to present an exhibition in an industrial space at Hardturmstrasse 127 in Zurich in 1993: ‘Jardin illuminé’. The following year, the gallery moved into the former space of Marc Jancou on Hardturmstrasse and presented the exhibition and publication ‘Egon Schiele: Works on Paper’, in collaboration with Serge Sabarsky.

In 1996, Hauser & Wirth Zürich was launched in the former Löwenbräu brewery building. Along with institutions including the Kunsthalle Zürich and the newly founded Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst, Hauser & Wirth was a founding member and tenant of what is now an arts complex housing POOL, Westbau and LUMA Foundation, amongst other contemporary art galleries. This was the first of the gallery’s architectural projects developed by Annabelle Selldorf. The first exhibitions in the Löwenbräu were ‘Malerei aus Deutschland’ including works by Hans Arp, Georg Baselitz, Max Beckmann and Blinky Palermo, ‘Joseph Cornell’ (in collaboration with the artist’s estate and C&M Arts) and a sculpture show including works by Dan Flavin, Lucio Fontana, Alberto Giacometti and Jeff Koons.
