Hauser & Wirth’s new Soho site expands the gallery’s Manhattan footprint to span three neighborhoods—the Upper East Side, Chelsea and Soho—and continue its longstanding practice of embracing the architectural heritage of the communities where it works. Constructed in 1920 as a truck garage, the distinctive single-story building at 134 Wooster Street occupies its own place within Soho’s larger role in the story of contemporary art.
‘Barbara Chase-Riboud. The Three Josephines’ is open until 23 December 2023.
Please join us for an opening reception from 6 – 8 pm on 8 November.

THE THREE JOSEPHINES
In the early 1970s, celebrated German abstractionist Blinky Palermo moved into 141 Wooster Street, home to Heiner Friedrich’s eponymous New York gallery where, in 1974, Friedrich co-founded the Dia Art Foundation. In 1975, Palermo painted a veritable portrait of 134 Wooster: ‘Wooster Street’ captures the structure’s deep green façade emblazoned in white with ‘JARR FUEL,’ the name of its occupant at that time. In 1977, the year of Palermo’s death, Friedrich installed Walter de Maria’s defining ‘New York Earth Room,’ a renowned interior work of land art that remains in the space to this day, steps from the front door of 134 Wooster.
