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.
