Hauser & Wirth open third New York space.

Art News reports Hauser & Wirth to open third New York space in SoHo, at 134 Wooster, once occupied by Gagosian Gallery when Soho was New York’s main gallery neighbourhood.

Also next year Hauser’s Artfarm will open a new restaurant kitty-corner to the SoHo space, at 130 Prince Street. In February Hauser opened a second space in Los Angeles with a George Condo exhibition. Later this year, it will open a space in Paris in the 8th arrondissement.

It’s not that we were looking for a space in SoHo

But this space became available and that’s what figured in our wish to be present there. We have a tendency to go to places where others don’t go.

SoHo is definitely not the place where galleries are—there are really only very few.

Marc Payot, Hauser & Wirth president

Located at 134 Wooster Street, just north of Prince Street, the ground-floor gallery, with 16-and-a-half-foot ceilings and 4,000 square feet of space, is one of the few remaining single-story buildings in the city’s SoHo-Historic Cast Iron District.

For most of our galleries, we have transformed existing spaces into galleries

When possible, we like to respect the original architecture and pay tribute to that when it is a beautiful space. In this case, a well-proportioned, simple space with skylights is ideal. It’s also very different from what we have in Chelsea or Uptown. We loved it, as it was in its bones.
