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.

The gallery’s first philanthropic online auction of works donated by the gallery’s artists has raised $4,585,000, with all proceeds going to support UNHCR’s work in providing life-saving assistance to the 103 million people who have been forced to flee their homes by conflict, war and persecution. The auction is Hauser & Wirth’s latest initiative under the gallery’s ‘Art for Better’ banner, created to platform an ongoing series of philanthropic projects with local, regional and international impact.

In 24 Days tha Sun’ll set at 7pm,’ led to the first Learning activity held at our Chelsea location in partnership with the organization, Wide Rainbow, a NYC based organization that works to expand access to art education by connecting children from under-resourced neighborhoods with contemporary artists. Lower East Side children from The Sixth Street Community Center attended a walkthrough of, ‘Christina Quarles.

Throughout October, Hauser & Wirth held events for The Big Draw Festival 2022 across 8 of our locations around the world. Chillida Leku, Hong Kong, London, Los Angeles, Menorca, Monaco, Somerset and Zurich all offered free creative activities for families, schools and communities that engaged with drawing and responded to the collective theme ‘Come Back to Colour.’ The theme invited participants to rediscover the vitality and vibrancy in everyone’s lives after what has been a challenging few years.

On the corner of Mayfair’s Mount Street and South Audley Street, The Audley Public House and Mount St. Restaurant have opened their doors. This major restoration project by Artfarm has resulted in a new London pub and fine dining restaurant unlike any others, featuring an array of artist interventions and artworks woven throughout their interiors. Formerly operating as pub with rooms for staff, the listed building was first a hotel, built in 1888 and designed by Thomas Verity, the man responsible for the exterior of the pavilion at Lord’s Cricket Ground.

We are proud to welcome Allison Katz to the gallery. Over a decade, Katz (born 1980, Montreal, Canada) has investigated the ways in which aesthetic practices link and absorb autobiography, commodity culture, information systems and art history. Her diverse imagery, including cocks, cabbages, mouths, fairies, elevators, noses, waterways, and variations on her own name, appear as recurring symbols and icons which build an unending constellation of ideas and references. Images transmute across the media of painting, posters, ceramics and installations. It is through this act of returning to, copying, transforming and reshaping motifs that the artist creates a lineage and continuity from one work to another, informing and connecting the totality with each new appearance. ‘I paint like I write, that is, I build around quotes, which is a conversation, in effect,’ says Katz. Her subjects are united by a curiosity for how an image passes through embodied experience, while its elasticity of meaning is shaped by impersonal, cultural conditions through time. In this way her work addresses the ambiguity of subjectivity and its presentation.

As part of our learning program, Hauser & Wirth has extended its partnership with South London Gallery for another year. This partnership was initiated in 2020 with a schools’ program responding to the difficulties that schools faced during and since the pandemic in accessing art gallery spaces and creative workshops. We will now also support South London Gallery’s youth group Art Assassins and the newly launched Making Sense initiative, a creative partnership between South London Gallery and University of the Arts London, alongside support from A New Direction and the RSA. The program brings together young people, educators and researchers to explore themes of inclusion and anti-racism through youth-led creative collectives, teacher training, conversations and resources. This initiative provides Hauser & Wirth with the opportunity to collaborate, to share and to extend the reach of our own learning program, making art accessible to all young people.

We are honored to announce worldwide representation of renowned American artist Pat Steir. Among the great innovators of contemporary painting, with a lifelong commitment to drawing and printmaking, Steir first came to prominence in the late 1970s and early 1980s for her iconographic canvases and immersive wall drawings. By the late 1980s, her inventive approach to painting—the rigorous pouring technique seen in her Waterfall works, in which she harnessed the forces of gravity and gesture to achieve works of astonishing lyricism—attracted substantial critical acclaim. Informed by a deep engagement with art history and Eastern philosophy, and a passion for artistic advocacy in the both the visual and literary realms, Steir’s storied five-decade career ­­continues to reach new heights through an intrepid commitment to material exploration and experimentation.

To celebrate our new exhibitions at Hauser & Wirth in New York, we will hold two days of public events on 10 & 17 September to connect with the local community, highlight the release of exciting new publications from our artists, expand the discourse around each new body of work and activate the spaces at 542 West 22nd Street through performance and a return to in person programming.
