Hauser & Wirth’s space at 542 West 22nd Street is the gallery’s first purpose-built, ground-up building. Designed by Selldorf Architects the 36,000 square foot space has been envisioned as a home for art and artists, placing the works on view at the forefront of the visitor’s experience. The five-story building features well-proportioned, distinctive spaces, natural light and flexible configurations.
Located in the Chelsea Arts District, the sensitive and contextual design of the building takes into account the neighborhood’s special historic character. This far West Chelsea block of 22nd Street is also home to the basalt stelle and leafy trees of Joseph Beuys’ famous project ‘7000 Oaks,’ initiated in 1982 in Kassel, Germany, and planted along this stretch in 1988 under the auspices of Dia.
As in many of Hauser & Wirth’s other locations, the new building on 22nd Street features a series of permanent, site-specific artist’s interventions.
Through collaboration and partnership, Hauser & Wirth New York works with our broad and esoteric communities that comprise a diverse range of identities and interests within creative and academic fields across New York City and internationally. The gallery provides community engagement and education by offering our uptown and downtown neighbors, youth organizations, schools, colleges, and institutions access to the gallery spaces and its resources.
Through our exhibitions, with the assistance of exhibiting and local artists, curators and partnerships, the gallery offers talks, walkthrough, screenings, and other educational events that broaden audiences and access to making contemporary art more inclusive and diverse.
