This massive space (116,000 square feet, to be exact) is the Arts District outpost of the international gallery Hauser & Wirth, which was founded in New York 1992. The L.A. space opened the addition of Paul Schimmel, the respected and well-connected former curator of the Museum of Contemporary Art who has since departed from the gallery, and occupies a former flour mill with its collection of contemporary art and modern masters. The project has restored the Globe Mills complex into a cultural center with museum-caliber exhibitions as well as public programs and educational activities.

This is easily the most impressive art gallery in the entire city. In terms of size and features, it's really more of a museum—the gallery spaces are large, nobody's pushing sales on you, there's a bookstore, etc. The content definitely isn't for everyone—hope you like conceptual art—but the space itself and the diversity of its pieces are enough to justify a visit.
