Since 1992, the Hauser & Wirth gallery has challenged our ideas of what a “show” can be. Founded by Manuela Wirth and Ursula Hauser in Switzerland, the gallery has created exciting exhibitions, performances, happenings, environments, and more. They’ve also invested in multiple arts education efforts, including an Arthaus program for teenagers at their Somerset location and Mark Bradford's Art + Practice youth program in Los Angeles, as well as published over 100 titles. It’s no wonder that the New York art scene could not wait for Hauser & Wirth's first American location to open in 2009.
