Throughout the month of October, Hauser & Wirth celebrated The Big Draw Festival 2023 theme ‘Drawing with Senses’ across our global locations. The gallery welcomed its audiences to foster meaningful connections with art and artists, encouraging deep listening and creative expression.
Participants were invited to bring attention to their thoughts, feelings and sensations in each gallery location as they intimately contemplated the artworks on display and record their personal responses through sound and voice. By audio recording their responses to this sensory experience, participants were able to experiment with translating sound into forms of drawing. An archived selection of these responses are available to explore here.

Calder’s grand-scale piece ‘Slender Legs’ (1959) is now on view in the historic heart of Monaco through 30 November. The standing mobile—a marriage of the artist's two signature sculptural innovations—is composed of lithe, free-moving ‘arms’ counterbalanced by an immobile triangular base, or the work's titular ‘legs.’ Five sharply angular elements coming off the sculpture’s arms are unfixed, poised to shift and slip in a breeze.

The London museum houses the collections of the Foundling Hospital, established in 1739 as a home for children at risk of abandonment. ‘The Mother & The Weaver’ takes the unseen mother, a central part of the Foundling Museum’s story, as a point of departure to explore complex ideas around motherhood, childhood, love, loss, sexuality and identity. Occupying the whole museum, this landmark exhibition will bring together over 40 works of art by 17 artists, all women, that are largely selected from the Ursula Hauser Collection, and places them in dialogue with historical objects from the Foundling Museum.

We are pleased to announce representation of Daniel Turner in collaboration with Galerie Allen in Paris. Based in New York, Turner works with sculpture, painting and installation to transfigure everyday materials, objects and environments into provocative new manifestations. On the surface, the artist’s work suggests the stark lines, industrial fabrication and simple geometric forms associated with minimalism. However, Turner merely employs this aesthetic to challenge the notion that raw materials are fundamentally meaningless, conditional, and interchangeable. His practice is driven by the conviction that physical matter inherently carries meaning—that objects are imbued with the emotional, psychological and historical context for which they were made and in which they were used.
