Hans Arp Exhibition to Launch Our New Zurich Gallery at Bahnhofstrasse 1
An exhibition of works by Hans Arp titled ‘Arp: Art is a Fruit’ will launch the gallery’s new space at Bahnhofstrasse 1 on 17 September, in Zurich’s historic central cultural district. Helmed by Partner and Executive Director, James Koch, the space will focus on exhibitions by the 35 artists’ estates represented by the gallery and will be a headquarters for Hauser & Wirth’s increasing private sales activity.
Centrally located close to Lake Zurich and adjacent to the landmark Baur au Lac hotel, the conversion of the ground floor at Bahnhofstrasse 1 into a gallery space is being overseen by Swiss architectural practice, Schmidlin Architekten. The floor to ceiling windows of the ground floor gallery space create a strong street presence on the legendary Bahnhofstrasse. The new venue complements our existing galleries in Switzerland in Zurich, St. Moritz and Gstaad and the Hauser & Wirth Publishers’ HQ. In each location, the goal is to create strong, well-proportioned spaces that place the art on view at the forefront of the experience.
