HAUSER & Wirth, the international fine art gallery, which has Hauser & Wirth Somerset at Durslade Farm, Bruton, has responded to the coronavirus crisis by launching Dispatches, a series of online exhibitions, original videos, and experiences.
The aim is to connect the view “with our artists – and all of us with each other – as we navigate this new reality together.”
The series will include videos of artists at home and in the studio, featuring: Phyllida Barlow, George Condo, Matthew Day Jackson, Guillermo Kuitca, Avery Singer and others.
The first online exhibition, is Louise Bourgeois: Early Drawings 1947 – 1986, selected with Jerry Gorovoy of The Easton Foundation. Drawing was a daily ritual for the celebrated French-American artist throughout her seven-decade career, used as a necessary tool to capture memories and emotions.
There will also be editorial stories, book recommendations, poems, and musings, starting with Helen Molesworth on Joan Mitchell, from Hauser & Wirth Publishers.
For children there is an online learning experiences, and for all art lovers there will be Hauser & Wirth’s Ursula Magazine, now free online.
