In 2015, Hauser & Wirth temporarily installed an exhibition of works by Rolf Sachs in a private house in Gstaad. The gallery’s relationship with Gstaad led to the inception of a historic exhibition in 2016, celebrating the Swiss mountains and Hauser & Wirth’s longstanding relationship with the Calder Foundation. ‘Calder in the Alps’ is an exhibition of outdoor sculptures by Alexander Calder installed in public locations around Gstaad, with the mountainous scenery providing a backdrop to the artist’s monumental mobiles and stabiles.
This summer Hauser & Wirth will collaborate with Casa Gstaad, a charming, traditional-style chalet in the heart of Gstaad, that has been the home to an interior design studio and showroom since 2020. The presentation will include a site-specific light installation by Pipilotti Rist titled ‘Seelenlichter (Soul Lights)’ alongside an eclectic hanging of works by the gallery’s artists.
