Hauser & Wirth St. Moritz will open in December 2018 with an exhibition of works by renowned late French-American artist Louise Bourgeois. In the heart of the Engadin Valley, the new space is a natural extension of the gallery’s activities in its native Switzerland.Read More
Hauser & Wirth St. Moritz will occupy the Palace Galerie space in the centre of St. Moritz. This 4,400 sq foot exhibition space spans three floors of a building owned by Badrutt’s Palace Hotel. Architect Luis Laplace will oversee interior remodelling of the site. Laplace has worked on numerous Hauser & Wirth projects, including the interior design of Le Vieux Chalet in Gstaad, and the restoration and conversion of Hauser & Wirth Somerset’s 18th-century farm buildings into a series of contemporary exhibition spaces.
St. Moritz has long been an enclave of creativity. The surrounding area was home to the Giacometti family and Alpine painter Giovanni Segantini. Over the course of the past two centuries, a range of cultural and intellectual figures have visited and been inspired by the Upper Engadine region, from philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, writer Thomas Mann and dancer Vaslav Nijinsky, to a host of artists including Gerhard Richter, Julian Schnabel, Richard Long, and Joseph Beuys. Legendary connoisseur Bruno Bischofberger was the first gallerist to establish a space in St. Moritz in 1963, and the region is now home to a number of modern and contemporary galleries.
The gallery will be open to be public Tuesday to Sunday, 10 am – 6 pm. A series of events and educational activities will accompany the exhibitions.
