About
Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles is one of thirteen worldwide locations of Hauser & Wirth, the international gallery devoted to contemporary art and modern masters. A family business with a global outlook, Hauser & Wirth opened its Los Angeles location in March 2016 in the heart of the burgeoning Downtown Los Angeles Arts District. Occupying a former flour mill, Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles is a vibrant communal space that links art and architecture with a dynamic events program. In addition to supporting and collaborating with many local and international cultural organizations, nonprofits, and universities, the Los Angeles gallery fosters public dialogue with the arts through a range of activities that engage the city’s diverse population.

The area
Address
Neighborhood: Downtown
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.

This amazing place is a commercial gallery with a museum-size space, and museum-style exhibitions. Their comprehensive show are extrordinary, and always worth a visit. (Philip Guston currently showing) Parking isn't easy, but it's worth the effort. (Other galleries are on the adjacent block, and a good choice of restaurants are nearby.)

On the whole this is an incredible space for art and a bite to eat. I really was blown away by the architecture and it was cool to wander the galleries. It's free and it's not massive, so you don't get overwhelmed.

However, I removed one *star* because I was really turned off by the main installation, which was meant to reflect the homelessness crisis. It is a "tent city" exhibition. I understand the artist's intention to create an exhibit that forces the viewer to confront the present problems, but is it necessary to replicate a situation that exists just blocks away from the gallery? I would have preferred for the artist and gallery to use the funds and space to help support actual homeless people or initiatives. This exhibit seemed like the artist was almost exploiting the problem to raise his own profile.

This is the world's largest art gallery in sheer space. The quality of the work shown here is up to that level as well. The building had been an old flour mill and the conversion to a gallery, restaurant and outdoor spaces as well make this one of the most memorable places to visit in Los Angeles. Best of all its open on Sundays when galleries are usually closed.

Downtown in the art area of Los Angeles I stopped in to see Paul McCarthy artwork sculpture and it was not in the first Gallery which was extraordinary but two other galleries across the courtyard Open Sky passed a fabulous restaurant bar place to settle your brain after some amazing overwhelming art. Every aspect of the place just took me by my shirt and shook me and I want to come back the next time I'm in LA. The particular show Paul McCarthy artwork was sculpted wood huge and really quite something to behold. Afterwards a glass of wine and a plate of lunch we all just had the best time and reluctantly left at closing.

This is art for people who don't want to wait in massive lines to see too much stuff they know nothing about. The three galleries for their first exhibition were well chosen with wonderful examples of women sculptors. The explanations are minimal and well chosen, the space is beautiful and old and I can't wait till their restaurant and public garden are open. Will definitely be back for their next exhibition. Plus it's in a busy and bright downtown area where you can eat drink and party all day if you want.

I didn't quite know what to expect when a friend of mine asked me to meet up with him at this out of the way gallery in the Arts District of LA. Upon my arrival, I was greeted by a open hallway with what appeared to be some sort of usher/bouncer at the front entrance. The entire area here was restored from it's days gone by into a seemingly swanky part of the Arts District where people come to dance, people watch and have a good time. Everything from the bathrooms to the open air courtyard were a mix of new and old, the old bricks can still be seen on the walls inside the men's toilets. There was a food truck on hand that sold some weird but tasty knish type of food. People from all walks of life came to dance to whatever sounds the DJ was playing. A mix of old school and new school music was in full effect. Rows of huge tables and benches were everywhere for those needing a rest. I didn't bother to browse any of the galleries near the front entrance, so that will be for another time.

This place was a good first introduction to the mysterious Arts District of LA. The day I visited was a Thursday, and there was a lively bunch of people out, so I can only imagine once the weekend rolls around! This should be your first stopping point visiting this eclectic area of Downtown Los Angeles.

This is worth a visit while in LA. The galleries are free and have rotating exhibits. This was my second time to visit the galleries and they had new exhibits that are world-class. The docents are very knowledgable and will answer your question. While we were there they just walked up to us and informed us of some of the aspects of art we were not aware of. There is a great gift shop and bookstore as well. Manuela's is an excellent restaurant inside the galleries I would highly recommend. make reservations. Parking is a little tough, there is valet you have to pay for but well worth it.

Everything about a visit to Hauser and Wirth is enriching. I visited 3 times in July and August. On the first visit I took in the exhibits, admired the creative re-use of the great old building, a lovely restaurant surrounded by plants situated next to the open exhibit courtyard, the wonderful kitchen garden with chickens and picnic tables, a small shop with unique gifts, and great bookstore. The second visit was to more intensely concentrate on one of the exhibits, and third visit was to briefly show an out of town guest the gallery. Additionally, the Arts District location is very nice, and convenient to Little Tokyo metro stop.

Naturally, the visit will be more to visit the little unique book store and use the brilliant restaurant Manuela. This time we managed to stop by when the galleries were closed for change of art.
