Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles

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.

Great gallery space in the heart of the arts district.  Parking options are expensive lots or extensive circling due to the neighborhood--I recommend parking far away and making a day out of exploring the neighborhood.  The gallery is a large rehab of an existing building, filled with outdoor and indoor spaces, as well as a restaurant, and two shops.  Stay connected on their offerings to check out rotating exhibitions or just wander in from  nearby attractions like Salt and Straw, Wurstkuche, or 82.

This gorgeous gallery space in a former flour mill makes me feel proud to be an Angeleno. It is such a wide open space to enjoy artwork, architecture, people watching, shopping, grabbing a bite and the public garden. I could have happily stayed all day to enjoy the space which offers a great sense of community.


My only wish is that it stayed open in the evenings too.

It opened recently and it was beautifully managed for the intend, because the building and surroundings, in itself, is worth a visit. The gallery is nicely organised, in an open space that allows you to be immersive with in the exposition. If you want or need any kind of information, people will attend and help, otherwise, you just go in and appreciate on your own time. Outside, you'll find a very nice atmosphere with several different artistic spaces and concepts that you can also explore. The book store is great and you can find all kind of art related publications.

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.
