Iwan Wirth, president and owner of Hauser & Wirth, the internationally acclaimed gallery of contemporary art and modern masters with exhibition spaces in Zurich, London, and New York, opened to public the company’s new Los Angeles venue on March 13, 2016, located at 901 East 3rd Street, in a historic 100,000 square foot flour mill complex in the city’s burgeoning downtown Arts District. Under the direction of partner Paul Schimmel, Hauser Wirth & Schimmel will transform the site’s sprawling collection of late 19th and early 20th century buildings and outdoor spaces into a dynamic multi-disciplinary arts center. The new venue will offer innovative exhibitions, museum-caliber amenities, and a robust schedule of public programs that contextualize the art on view, drawing upon, illuminating, and contributing to the urban culture of L.A.

Hauser Wirth & Schimmel will complement its exhibition program with the first ARTBOOK store in Los Angeles; a gallery space for Hauser & Wirth Publishers’ Book & Printed Matter Lab, the restaurant Manuela, opening summer 2016, featuring seasonal fare and locally-sourced produce with a menu focused upon foods of the American South; a public garden; murals that engage the architecture of the complex; and and a dramatic and expansive open-air courtyard, where visitors will find sculpture as well as a place for quiet contemplation and informal gathering. Hauser Wirth & Schimmel is already the sixth location of Hauser & Wirth, which was founded in Switzerland in 1992 by Iwan and Manuela Wirth and Ursula Hauser.
Until September 4, 2016, Hauser Wirth & Schimmel is presenting ‘Revolution in the Making: Abstract Sculpture by Women, 1947 – 2016,’ the inaugural exhibition at its new complex. Through nearly 100 works made by 34 artists over the past seventy years, this ambitious undertaking traces ways in which women have changed the course of art by deftly transforming the language of sculpture since the postwar period.
