An exhibition of works by Joan Miró, titled ‘Miró en Zabalaga,’ will open on 21 May 2022, paying tribute to Miró and the friendship that bound him to Eduardo Chillida. Continuing the Basque museum's initiative of inviting the great contemporary peers—who contribute to enrich and contextualize the San Sebastian artist’s legacy—the exhibition will be displayed on the first floor of the Zabalaga farmhouse at Chillida Leku, the building itself is the starting point for the selection of works that cover the 1946-1982 period.

Hauser & Wirth have been a key supporter of Hospital Rooms over the past three years through annual auctions that have collectively raised over £200,000. The gallery is now solidifying its partnership with Hospital Rooms through a new commitment to the organization until 2025 that will raise £1 million for the charity.

In 2020, Amy Sherald painted the portrait of Breonna Taylor for the historic cover of Vanity Fair magazine. Renowned for her documentation of the contemporary Black experience, Sherald always intended for the work to live beyond the date of the September 2020 issue, and to contribute to causes of social justice. The acquisition of the painting by the Ford Foundation and the Hearthland Foundation in 2021 enabled her to realize both.

Coinciding with the release of ‘I Paint What I Want to See,’ a collection of Philip Guston’s writings, lectures, and interviews published by Penguin, Hauser & Wirth London will display a rarely seen selection of Philip Guston’s Poem-Pictures from 5 – 20 April 2022. In these illustrative works, Guston’s drawings interact with selected lines of poetry by his wife and poet Musa McKim and American poet Clark Coolidge.

Founded in 2018, Hauser and Wirth Institute (HWI) is a nonprofit, private foundation dedicated to transforming the field of artists’ archives by nurturing equity and innovation and increasing access to archives. The Institute has announced a gift of $360,000 to The Studio Museum in Harlem to process and digitize institutional archives over the course of three years, in addition to $280,000 for the full tuition of two graduate students entering Pratt Institute’s dual-degree master’s program in library and information science and history of art and design. These gifts build upon HWI’s 2021 grants of $60,000 allocated to Sixty Inches From Center, Asia Art Archive and YVR Art Foundation to support innovative archival projects that empower communities of artists, archivists and researchers to preserve and promote their own cultural histories.

This International Women’s Day, we are delighted to be hosting a selection of the best female chefs in all three of our restaurants: Manuela, The Fife Arms and Roth Bar & Grill. Across three special dinners, join us to celebrate the culinary talents of Angela Hartnett OBE, Jane Devonshire, and Melissa Virgen.

The exhibition ‘Gustav Metzger’ at our Somerset gallery in 2021 is our first to receive a carbon emissions calculation. The gallery team worked to produce an environmentally-responsible exhibition and achieve a low carbon footprint by actively discussing the environmental impact of the exhibition and the sustainability interests at the heart of Metzger’s practice.

We have been active in Asia for over a decade, developing our presence through our Hong Kong space, which opened in 2018, and an ongoing program of exhibitions, partnerships, and fair presentations. A highly respected industry figure, Kwok will bring enhanced leadership to the Asia team ensuring that excellence and an artist-centered approach continue to be the hallmarks of Hauser & Wirth’s growing activity in the region.

The Making of Hauser & Wirth Menorca

Iwan and Manuela Wirth, Luis Laplace, Piet Oudolf and other key figures tell the story of our new art center on Illa del Rei in the port of Mahon.

‘‘The Milk of Dreams’ takes its title from a book by Leonora Carrington (1917–2011),’ says Cecilia Alemani, ‘in which the Surrealist artist describes a magical world where life is constantly re-envisioned through the prism of the imagination. It is a world where everyone can change, be transformed, become something or someone else. The exhibition takes Leonora Carrington’s otherworldly creatures, along with other figures of transformation, as companions on an imaginary journey through the metamorphoses of bodies and definitions of the human.’

Explore new sculptures and paintings by Gary Simmons and Phyllida Barlow, celebrate in the open-air courtyard with a vinyl set paying to tribute to Lee 'Scratch' Perry, and join us in the garden for public talks with Helen Molesworth, Cauleen Smith, Miranda July, and more.

Hauser & Wirth Menorca has received the Best Art Destination award by global design authority Wallpaper*. The Wallpaper* Design Awards celebrate the design hits of the previous year and are ‘a testament to design’s ability to respond to evolving needs, lift our spirits, and serve the public good.’ Since 2005, the awards have recognized works by architects and designers including OMA, Herzog & de Meuron, Hermès, Celine, Sabine Marcelis, Tadao Ando and Adjaye Associates among many others.

We are pleased to share the news that the gallery will create a flagship space in the heart of Mayfair, complementing our existing Savile Row location. This new home for art and artists will occupy the lower floors of the Goode Building, an important historic Grade II* listed icon of Victorian architecture designed by Ernest George and Peto architects between 1875 and 1876. Over the course of its 30-year history, Hauser & Wirth has transformed numerous architectural landmarks into outstanding destinations to experience art in Zurich, Somerset, Los Angeles, New York, and, most recently, Menorca.

Camille Henrot (born 1978, Paris, France) is recognized as one of the most influential voices in contemporary art today. Over the past twenty years, she has developed a critically acclaimed practice, encompassing drawing, painting, sculpture, installation, and film, which is informed by a playful research process. Inspired by literature, second-hand marketplaces, poetry, cartoons, social media, self help, and the banality of everyday life, Henrot’s work captures the complexity of living as both private individuals and global citizens in an increasingly connected and over-stimulated world.

A powerful new public artwork by Jenny Holzer, ‘HURT EARTH,’ will illuminate UK landmarks from 29 October 2021, drawing attention to the climate crisis and coinciding with COP26, the 26th annual United Nations summit on climate change.

In November 2022, Hauser & Wirth will stage the second part of a trilogy of exhibitions curated by Luca Massimo Barbero, in collaboration with the Fondazione Lucio Fontana. Dedicated to Fontana’s extraordinary experimentation in sculpture, this tailor-made presentation will take place at our uptown location, Hauser & Wirth New York, 69th Street, the very same building where in 1961 Fontana’s first solo shows in the United States were held concurrently at the Martha Jackson and David Anderson galleries. These exhibitions, critical to introducing Fontana’s work more deeply to American audiences, followed the artist’s inclusion in the relevant 1949 exhibition ‘Twentieth-Century Italian Art,’ curated by James Thrall Sobey and Alfred H. Barr Jr., at the Museum of Modern Art, where his work remains a highlight of the permanent collection.

A destination to experience art in connection with education, nature and conservation, Hauser & Wirth Menorca is located on an island in Mahon harbour, comprising eight galleries in the repurposed 18th century outbuildings of a naval hospital. ‘Art is at the heart, but it is also a deeply inclusive model’, says Iwan Wirth. ‘It is a holistic concept that, by nature, is community-based.’

Thomas J Price has rapidly become one of the most important British contemporary sculptors of his generation, subverting stereotypical representations of figures we value in society and traditional power structures. After studying at Chelsea College of Art, he completed his MA at the Royal College of Art in 2006 and began further interrogating the language of monumentalism to question the status inherent in public sculptures. Much of his work engages ideas of representation and perception, challenging existing historical narratives and reappropriating power. Price has exhibited widely in the UK and internationally, including solo exhibitions at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, West Bretton (2014), National Portrait Gallery, London (2016) and The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery, Toronto (2019). This July he will take up post as artist-in-residence at Hauser & Wirth Somerset ahead of his inaugural solo exhibition with the gallery in October 2021.
