Between artists’ writings, exceptional exhibition-related books, and the pursuit of the highest levels of craft in design and bookmaking, Hauser & Wirth Publishers creates vital, lasting records of artists’ work and ideas. We also publish Ursula, an award-winning magazine that features some of the most thought-provoking writers and artists in the world. We look forward to welcoming you to our new U.S. flagship bookshop, a home for our visitors to engage with our artists and other prominent voices of our time in a new way.
The Poetry Issue! Ursula No. 8, the magazine’s first theme issue, celebrates the time-honored affinities between poets and artists. A collaboration with The Poetry Project in New York, organized by Nicole Eisenman and featuring a riotous painting by Eisenman on the cover, the issue gathers new work by a dozen distinguished poets.
Hauser & Wirth’s Learning programs embrace the gallery setting as an enriching space for dialogue, creativity, and discovery. 18th Street houses gathering spaces that carry forward the gallery’s long-standing global initiatives, including partnerships with local nonprofits and collaborations with local schools and universities–in turn increasing access to artists and their practices, as well as careers in the arts.
Hauser & Wirth produces talks, panels, films series, screenings, readings, events, residencies, and performances to amplify the voices and work of our global roster of artists. Importantly, our Public Programs and Learning teams collaborate to expand our audiences and give a platform to emerging talent. Where Learning offers hands-on, intimate experiences that foster access to art careers, Public Programs bring our local communities closer to artists’ practices through curated interactions and conversations.
18th Street is our first location devoted to Editions, a space where visitors can explore contemporary and historical prints through exhibitions and programs that showcase the multifaceted practices of our diverse, international family of artists. Insight into the creative legacies of such artists as Louise Bourgeois, Luchita Hurtado and Eva Hesse, as well as the innovations of new generations of artists, from Nicole Eisenman and Glenn Ligon, to Takesada Matsutani and Rashid Johnson, now have a dedicated home in New York.
Originally built in 1920 for New York City’s Consolidated Gas Company, Hauser & Wirth’s West 18th Street location building has been restored and adapted by David Bench, Principal of inca architects pllc. In addition to housing Hauser & Wirth’s first dedicated space for Editions, the site is home to the U.S. headquarters of Hauser & Wirth Publishers and its award-winning magazine, Ursula.
