Located in the heart of Monaco, near the historic Hôtel de Paris, Hauser & Wirth’s new gallery features a spectacular main exhibition space, a 290 sq.m. cube with 9 meter high walls, lit from above by a dramatic skylight. The conversion of the site has been conducted by Selldorf Architects, New York, which has collaborated with Hauser & Wirth on its spaces internationally since the founding of the gallery in 1992. In Monaco, Hauser & Wirth occupies the lower spaces of a building designed by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners and owned by the Société des Bains de Mer.
The inaugural exhibition ‘Louise Bourgeois. Maladie de l’Amour’ opens on 19 June until 26 September 2021. A monumental public sculpture from the French American artist’s Spider series, a bronze arachnid over three meters tall, will be installed in the gardens adjacent to the gallery.
