Hauser & Wirth is an internationally acclaimed gallery of contemporary and modern art.
The first gallery was founded in Zurich in 1992.
Hauser & Wirth opened its first London gallery on Piccadilly in 2003 with an installation by Los Angeles-based artist Paul McCarthy and, in 2010, the gallery opened a second permanent space on London’s Savile Row. The Savile Row gallery’s inaugural exhibition was the critically acclaimed ‘Louise Bourgeois: The Fabric Works’ curated by Germano Celant.
Hauser & Wirth has been a major presence in the London art scene: with three spaces in the city over time—Hauser & Wirth Piccadilly, Hauser & Wirth Old Bond Street and Hauser & Wirth Savile Row. In addition to these permanent spaces, Hauser & Wirth also opened an enormous temporary project space in London’s East End in 2005. Hauser & Wirth Coppermill showed exhibitions by Martin Kippenberger and Dieter and Björn Roth, Christoph Büchel, and Martin Creed before it closed in July 2007.
In October 2010, Hauser & Wirth London opened their new gallery, designed by Selldorf Architects, at 23 Savile Row with the exhibition, ‘Louise Bourgeois: The Fabric Works’.The new gallery offers 15,000 square feet (1,400 m2) of exhibition space and an additional 7,000 square feet (650 m2) on the first floor for new offices and an extensive library and archive. In December 2013, Hauser & Wirth closed their Piccadilly gallery permanently.
