The location for Hauser & Wirth gallery's new collaboration with curator Paul Schimmel, will be 901 East 3rd Street, in a 100,000 square foot flour mill complex, in the city's downtown Arts District. The historic complex is comprised of seven different buildings, including a Neo-Classical bank building; a five-story mill structure; two warehouses with arched truss ceilings and skylights; and a third warehouse, the largest building on the site, featuring a windowed clerestory. Creating a variety of spaces, the gallery's aim is to have three to five exhibitions on view at any given time, changing several times a year. In addition to shows and projects by the gallery's LA-based artists, exhibitions at Hauser Wirth & Schimmel will include a mix of important historical, thematic group exhibitions; exhibitions that introduce LA to the gallery's international artists; and one-person shows and special projects by artists new to LA and the gallery.
In January 2015, Hauser Wirth & Schimmel will present a three-month group show in the un-renovated spaces, with a focus on LA artists who have emerged in the past fifteen years. The complex, for which the gallery has signed a long-term lease, will then close for renovation and open to the public permanently the following winter.
