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.

Alongside the gallery buildings and immersed in the natural landscape of Illa del Rei, works by Spanish masters Joan Miró and Eduardo Chillida feature together with landmark sculptures by Louise Bourgeois, Franz West, Camille Henrot and a new sculpture by Martin Creed, presented for the first time by the sea in Mahon’s harbour.

Hauser & Wirth Somerset is firmly embedded in the local community and rural landscape of Somerset. Since its launch in 2014, the arts center has supported and worked in partnership with many institutions, businesses and organizations in the South West, raising over £150,000 for local charities.

Following an open call to Spanish universities, this year’s Education Lab at Hauser & Wirth Menorca has been created as part of a post-graduate student residency. The participants have worked with the gallery community and local entities to conceptualize a learning space and program that run alongside Rashid Johnson’s exhibition ‘Sodade.’

As reported in ARTNews, Hauser & Wirth Education Lab LA is a new creative education initiative for students from a local high school based in Downtown Los Angeles. The two-part project features workshops led by a team of arts professionals at the gallery and a visual arts project created by the students in collaboration with Los Angeles-based artist Mark Bradford, which opened to the public on 16 July and will remain on view through 18 September. The first Education Lab LA initiative recognizes Bradford’s partnership with the Los Angeles-based, international non-profit, PILAglobal, an organization that offers innovative education to children who live in refugee camps, migrant shelters, or in abject poverty through the creation of ‘Nests,’ or early learning spaces.

As part of our ongoing commitment to facilitating dialogue and disseminating information with the global art community, ‘Sustainability In Action’ will provide a dynamic platform for action-focused industry collaboration, dialogue and knowledge sharing. The line up of speakers includes artist Pipilotti Rist, Artists Commit; Art/Switch; Art to Acres; Christie’s; ClientEarth; Kate MacGarry; Frances Morris, Tate Modern; Gallery Climate Coalition; Hospital Rooms; KiCulture; Paul Tukey of Glenstone Museum and Superflex. Taking place on Friday 15 July 2022, the day-long conference will be a hybrid, digital and in real life event, uniting international arts sustainability networks, hosted by Hauser & Wirth CEO Ewan Venters and chaired by art writer, broadcaster and The Art Newspaper correspondent, Louisa Buck.

We are pleased to announce our plans to open a new gallery in Paris, situated on the right bank of the River Seine close to the Champs-Élysées in the 8th arrondissement. Occupying an entire hôtel particulier dating from 1877, the gallery at 26 bis rue François 1er will cover 800 square meters over four floors. The neo-classical building formerly housed La Maison Decour, a decorative arts gallery, until the 1940s. The conversion of the space will reinstate the double-height, six-meter-tall ground floor gallery with a further exhibition space on the first floor. As in Hauser & Wirth’s existing locations, we will establish meaningful partnerships to create an inclusive learning program as an integral part of the gallery’s program in Paris.

This summer at Hauser & Wirth Somerset we are celebrating our inaugural Education Lab in partnership with Arts University Bournemouth (AUB), open to the public from 28 May until 4 September 2022. The Education Lab is part of the gallery’s commitment to inclusive learning programs that instigate a dialogue between art, artists and a diverse audience. Designed to support students by offering a short period of professional experience in our Somerset gallery, the initiative gives visibility to creative approaches to collaborative learning and mentoring.

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 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.’

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.
