Now Open: Updates to our Global Locations

Our Hong Kong and Zurich galleries are now open with Günther Förg and Luchita Hurtado exhibitions, and Lorna Simpson exhibition to open next month in Hong Kong

As a global community, we are now at a promising turning point as some of us emerge from lockdown. We are thrilled to share the news that our galleries in Hong Kong and Zurich are now open.
Hauser & Wirth Hong Kong opens with a new group presentation featuring work by Rita Ackermann, Louise Bourgeois, Larry Bell, Takesada Matsutani, and others. This will be followed by Lorna Simpson’s first exhibition in Greater China opening 16 June 2020. This will bring together the artist’s latest works from her Special Characters series, a selection of photographic collages, and new paintings.

Hauser & Wirth Zürich will open on Monday 11 May with two exhibitions, ‘Günther Förg. surface of bronze’ and ‘Luchita Hurtado. Just Down the Street’. Both shows were on view for just 48 hours before the lockdown began in Switzerland, so we are delighted to finally be able to open these to the public again, along with the bookshop in our Hauser & Wirth Publishers headquarters in Zurich.

The current situation has impacted us all in ways we never could have anticipated. While we have been apart from friends and families, our artists provide vital inspiration through their work. Many of us are still looking forward to being able to travel or see exhibitions. We will continue to connect you with our artists through our digital platforms, from our Dispatches series and online exhibitions, to our new virtual reality exhibition set in our gallery of the future in Menorca.

Art and creativity bring us together while we are in isolation. One of these special shared experiences was the screening of the documentary about Piet Oudolf, ‘Five Seasons’, which was watched by 1 million people online.

While our galleries in Hong Kong and Zurich are the first to reopen, more locations will follow in the coming months. In each case, we are taking every precaution to keep our team and visitors safe while allowing intimate encounters with art.

Learn more about our Locations worldwide and visit this page for ongoing updates about our galleries and opening hours.

‘Günther Förg. surface of bronze’ and ‘Luchita Hurtado. Just Down the Street’ are on view at Hauser & Wirth Zurich from 11 May – 31 July 2020. In Hong Kong, our presentation of selected works by gallery artists is on view through 30 May 2020, followed by ‘Lorna Simpson. Special Characters’ opening 16 June 2020.
