Hauser & Wirth Has Big Plans for Los Angeles

hauser wirth schimmelHauser & Wirth is heading West. Nearly a year to the date that the gallery announced the hiring of Paul Schimmel, formerly chief curator of the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, comes word that the planned Left Coast outpost—Hauser Wirth & Schimmel—will occupy a historic 100,000-square-foot flour mill complex in L.A.’s downtown arts district.

The site, located a few blocks from The Broad in progress, is home to seven late 19th and early 20th century buildings and outdoor spaces. The gallery promises “innovative exhibitions, museum-caliber amenities, and a robust schedule of public programs that contextualize the art on view,” beginning with a pop-up exhibition in January of next year. The L.A. venue is slated to have its grand opening in January 2016.

In the meantime, Hauser & Wirth is putting the finishing touches on a second U.K. location, in the small Somerset town of Bruton. The historic Durslade Farm will host exhibitions—and overnight guests. In July, an 18th-century farmhouse on the property will open as a six-room guesthouse: think vintage furniture and new works by artists in Hauser & Wirth’s (figurative) stable.
