Hauser & Wirth is an internationally acclaimed gallery of contemporary and modern art.
The first gallery was founded in Zurich in 1992.
In September 2009 Hauser & Wirth opened a New York gallery in the Upper East Side of Manhattan with ‘Allan Kaprow. Yard’ an Environment first made in 1961 by Allan Kaprow.
In 2013, Hauser & Wirth opened their second New York gallery at 511 West 18th Street, in what used to be the Roxy. Located on the second level of a Chelsea garage, the gallery draws visitors up a long, sweeping stairway before revealing the 10,000 sf exhibition space. Several artists contributed to the project including Björn Roth, who designed the gallery’s Roth Bar as a tribute to his father Dieter Roth; and Martin Creed, who created a custom installation for the entrance stair hall.
‘I was always creative and believed in the things I made, but I couldn’t connect sustainability and being an artist,’—Mark Bradford, pictured on his gravel work 'Barren' (2017) outside the U.S. Pavilion, in WSJ Magazine (@wsjmag) September issue cover portfolio of the Venice Biennale. ‘So my sustainability came from whatever job I had [at the time]. Being an artist was something I enjoyed. Then, three years after grad school, I sold a painting and I thought, Huh, maybe I don’t have to be in the hair salon my whole life. I always give myself permission to change things. Just because I’m in the fast lane doesn’t mean I won’t turn the opposite way. I don’t have a problem being messy.’ See the full story by Thomas Gebremedhin (@tgebremedhin) online now, and in print 26 August 2017. Photo: Mario Sorrenti (@mario_sorrenti)

Takesada Matstutani’s ‘Venice Stream’ (2016) features in his current solo exhibition at Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles, on view through 3 September 2017. –
In this and other late works, Matsutani brings together his signature material of vinyl glue with graphite pencil. In a marked difference from the raw rendering of his early works, Matsutani carefully controls the glue as it moves across his canvases, making or deflating pockets of air and creating new ridges, wrinkles and crevices as the adhesive hardens. He then covers the surface in methodical, almost meditative, graphite lines, these markings reflecting light, teasing out hints of texture, depth and volume. –
The ‘Venice Stream’ tondo canvas is from the series of works Matsutani made for his participation in ‘Viva Arte Viva’, the 57th International Art Exhibition curated by Christine Macel at La Biennale di Venezia.
