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.
The 22nd Street gallery is home to the Hauser & Wirth Publishers’ Bookshop, which features artists’ books, limited editions and curated displays of rare and archival materials. Hauser & Wirth Publishers plays a central role in the gallery’s identity and program, and offers dozens of titles representing the Hauser & Wirth’s quarter-century history of exhibitions, projects, and research. Each publication seeks to encourage understanding about contemporary art, promoting discourse and appreciation by bringing new, sometimes overlooked, aspects of an artist’s creative practice into focus.
Adjacent to the Hauser & Wirth Publishers Bookshop is the Roth Bar, a specially crafted café and bar made from locally sourced salvaged materials, designed by Björn, Oddur and Einar Roth, son and grandsons of German-born Swiss artist Dieter Roth. The Roth Bar serves a rotating selection of cocktails and seasonal fare based on ingredients sourced from local farms.
