Looking ahead to fall 2023, we will open a new exhibition space at 134 Wooster Street just north of Prince Street, in the heart of the Soho-Historic Cast Iron District. Occupying one of the last remaining single-story, early 20th-century industrial buildings in a neighborhood famous worldwide for its concentration of magnificent 19th-century cast iron façade architecture and distinctive bluestone cobbled streets, our new Soho location will be a site for important exhibitions, artists’ projects and public programs.

Gallery Climate Coalition (GCC) has announced Hauser & Wirth amongst the first wave of its members who have achieved ‘Active’ status. GCC launched plans for the Active Member designation in October 2022, to coincide with its two-year anniversary. The initiative is intended to celebrate the organizations and individuals who have taken effective steps towards environmental responsibility as well as incentivising those who are yet to honor the coalition commitments. The launch of this initiative marks an evolution in GCC’s strategy from awareness raising and community building to one focusing on near-term tangible progress, starting with three key actions:

Since opening its doors in 2016, Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles has become both a destination and active partner in the life of Downtown LA. The gallery has supported and collaborated with numerous local cultural, educational and non-profit organizations to make lasting contributions to the city it calls home. This past year, Hauser & Wirth partnered with seven local nonprofits, including PILAglobal, Las Fotos Project, and The Garden School Foundation, in addition to its longtime partnership with Cal State LA through the Community Impact Media program that has supported diversity in filmmaking and resulted in the creation of over 20 documentaries on local nonprofits.

The Cultural Institute of Radical Contemporary Arts (CIRCA) is presenting ‘Arrival’—the first digital artwork by modern master Sir Frank Bowling. Celebrating the 70-year anniversary of his arrival in London from British Guiana (now Guyana) in May 1953, the exhibition runs from 4 May until 30 June and coincides with The Coronation of His Majesty King Charles III and the 75th anniversary of Windrush.

‘Mika Rottenberg’ at Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles, is the first major presentation of Rottenberg’s work on the West Coast and the most comprehensive carbon footprint calculation of the artist's work to date. This research helps to form the basis of carbon and waste reduction activities in our Downtown Los Angeles gallery and in future projects with the artist.

Curated by Oriol Fontdevila, the group exhibition ‘After the Mediterranean’ mobilizes collective narratives around the human and ecological crises that impact the region. Through their works, the artists introduce alternative accounts to those narratives—including a clock for the island in 12 pieces incorporating sand and a future landscape in which the effects of climate change give rise to an underground world.  

The Community Impact Media Spring 2023 semester will foreground women-led nonprofits in Los Angeles, including Greetings from South Central, Nancy Evans Dance Theatre and The Collective Identity Mentoring. These nonprofits are dedicated to addressing causes like arts education, enhancing diversity within dance and fostering youth mentorship programs. Continuing the work of past semesters, students met with LA-based nonprofits to learn more about how they are serving their local community, while also learning the fundamentals of creating a documentary to ultimately premiere it to the public at the gallery.

‘Eduardo Chillida’ at our Somerset gallery in 2022, was the second in a series of Hauser & Wirth exhibitions to receive a carbon emissions calculation. The gallery team worked to produce an environmentally-conscious exhibition, developing an understanding of decision making involved in planning a show that took into account carbon emissions and waste.

In November of 2022, The Box initiated an Institutional tour of WS White Snow, with curators and leadership from the Getty, MOCA, the Hammer, the Broad, the ICALA, LAND, LAXART, LACMA, and the Lucas Museum. This think tank has resulted in the rapid action of this joint presentation of Paul McCarthy’s WS White Snow, to coincide with Frieze Los Angeles, as a means to garner support for permanent preservation of the work. In Downtown Los Angeles from 16 – 19 February 2023, the location of the presentation is available upon RSVP.

We are pleased to announce the launch of our fourth decade with a constellation of events in Los Angeles—a world city that is both a major American cultural capital and a prime source of inspiration and energy for the gallery since its founding in 1992. To mark the moment, the gallery will debut exhibitions and public programs spanning LA from its Downtown Arts District location in the converted historic Globe Mills complex, to its new space in the heart of West Hollywood.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art has announced a transformative promised gift of 220 works by Philip Guston (1913 – 1980) from the personal collection of Musa Mayer, the artist’s daughter and a close collaborator of Hauser & Wirth in shaping and preserving this incredible artist’s legacy. Consisting of 96 paintings and 124 drawings—the earliest created in 1930 and the latest in 1980—this collection represents the full arc of Guston’s career. This gift will position The Met as the largest repository of works by the iconic American painter and reaffirm Guston’s undisputed place in art history.
