Hauser & Wirth is a global enterprise representing over 50 established and emerging contemporary artists. The gallery also represents the estates of Eva Hesse, Allan Kaprow, Lee Lozano, Jason Rhoades, Dieter Roth and Philippe Vandenberg, as well as the Henry Moore Family Collection.
Hauser & Wirth was founded in Zürich in 1992 by Iwan and Manuela Wirth and Ursula Hauser. In
1996, Hauser & Wirth opened a space in the former Löwenbräu brewery building, along with other contemporary art galleries, the Kunsthalle Zürich, and Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst. In 2003, the gallery expanded with the opening of Hauser & Wirth London on Piccadilly in an historic building designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens, adding a new and energetic dimension to London's
growing Importance as an international art center.
Hauser & Wirth New York opened to the public on the Upper East Side of Manhattan in September 2009. In October 2010, the gallery opened a new London space on Savile Row. In January 2013, Hauser & Wirth will open its second location in New York at 511 West 18th Street. Housed in an historic stable and garage structure that was formerly the legendary Roxy discotheque, the 24,700 square foot venue will be one of the largest column-free spaces for exhibiting art in the city.
Both locations of Hauser & Wirth New York are open to visitors Tuesday through Saturday, 10 am until 6 pm. The general public can find additional information about the gallery, its exhibitions and programs online at: www.hauserwirth.com.
