Hauser & Wirth
Hauser & Wirth Somerset is an innovative gallery and multi-purpose arts complex that functions as a location for exploring conceptual art, contemporary architecture, and the stunning Somerset countryside via new and unique exhibitions. Behind the gallery buildings, an outstanding manicured garden, created by globally-renowned landscape architect Piet Oudolf, has a rotating programme of outdoor sculptures and houses the Radi Pavilion, designed by Smiljan Radi.
The institution also has a passion for giving back to local communities. Founder’s Iwan and Manuela Wirth reside in the area and support a variety of local organisations. Their charity contributions are primarily focused on the fields of art, architecture, landscape, conservation, gardening, food, education, and community.
Their education programme also offers opportunities for individuals, schools, special interest groups, families, and outreach activities. In addition to the exhibition programme, the gallery hosts a series of talks, seminars, and events given by artists, specialists, and curators that are available to schools, colleges, universities, and the general public.
