Gallery Hauser & Wirth to get new Chelsea digs

High-end art gallery Hauser & Wirth, which represents artists such as Mark Bradford, Pierre Huyghe and Louise Bourgeois, is expanding with a new Annabelle Selldorf-designed building in Chelsea.

When completed, the gallery will be the first original structure built for Hauser & Wirth since the company’s founding nearly 20 years ago, according to Architecture Digest.

The new venue will rise between 10th and 11th avenues, opposite the Dia Art Foundation’s project space, at 542 West 22nd Street. It will occupy 7,400 square feet.

The permanent building will replace Hauser & Wirth’s current location at 511 West 18th Street, which opened in January 2013. Selldorf has designed three of Hauser & Wirth’s venues—in London, Zurich and on NYC’s Upper East Side. Her style has been described as “luxe minimalism.” [Architecture Digest]Christopher Cameron
