Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles

Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles is one of eight worldwide locations of Hauser & Wirth, the international gallery devoted to contemporary art and modern masters. A family business with a global outlook, Hauser & Wirth opened its Los Angeles location in March 2016 in the heart of the burgeoning Downtown Los Angeles Arts District. Occupying a former flour mill, Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles is a vibrant communal space that links art and architecture with a dynamic events program. In addition to supporting and collaborating with many local and international cultural organizations, nonprofits, and universities, the Los Angeles gallery fosters public dialogue with the arts through a range of activities that engage the city’s diverse population.

Hauser & Wirth aims to make a lasting contribution to the Los Angeles community by sharing its resources and offering a variety of family, youth, and adult programs inspired by the gallery’s visionary artists. Modeled after Hauser & Wirth’s Somerset gallery – the revolutionary arts center that opened in rural England in 2014 – the Los Angeles location has expanded its events program to include dance and music performances, film screenings, family activities, maker workshops, and artist-led conversations.

The Los Angeles gallery site includes Manuela, the onsite restaurant offering seasonal, locally-sourced produce, a chicken coop and an urban garden, an open-air courtyard with a native Southern California oak tree and other indigenous plants, and murals celebrating the Arts District’s history. Additionally, the site is home to the first ARTBOOK store in Los Angeles, the Gallery Shop, which offers a curated selection of hand-crafted products, and Hauser & Wirth Publishers’ Book & Printed Matter Lab.

Located at 901 East 3rd Street, the gallery is situated in the former Globe Mills complex, a collection of historic buildings dating back to the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The site was restored by Los Angeles real estate company Creative Space, LA in consultation with Annabelle Selldorf, Principal of Selldorf Architects. In 2018, Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles was awarded the Chair’s Award, Los Angeles Conservancy’s highest honor recognizing the importance of preserving historic landmarks that make the city unique.

Founded in Switzerland in 1992 by Iwan and Manuela Wirth and Ursula Hauser, Hauser & Wirth has expanded to include outposts in Hong Kong, London, New York, Los Angeles, Somerset and Gstaad. In 2018, Hauser & Wirth will open its first purpose-built gallery space at 542 West 22nd Street in New York’s West Chelsea art district.

The gallery’s global operations are overseen by Iwan and Manuela Wirth, and Marc Payot, Partner and Vice President.
