Hauser & Wirth, the local/global new deal
Art Market | Belonging to the upper echelons of global mega-galleries, with outposts in Zurich, London and New York, Hauser & Wirth opens a new space in Somerset, about 2 hours outside London.
Honing the rural gallery concept already inaugurated by Continua Gallery in San Gimignano in Tuscany and Les Moulins near Paris, a local 18th century malt manufacturer is renovated into a bustling complex including exhibition spaces, a park, a restaurant, and artist residencies. Beyond the exhibitions, works are installed in the living spaces, like Guillermo Kuitca’s wall painting in the dining room, Pipilotti Rist’s hypnotic video installation in the living room or Alex van Gelder’s radical « Meat portraits » photos in the restaurant... This creative hub develops zones of proximity between buyers and artists, a local/global new deal.
