Hauser & Wirth’s new platform Homegrown exhibits artwork by their own gallery staff

THE Hauser & Wirth Gallery is launching a new exhibition, Homegrown with artworks by worldwide gallery staff and their families. The proceeds from this bi-weekly exhibition will go to the participating artists, with 10% to COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund of the World Health Organisation.

As with many galleries and art institutions, many of the staff members are also practicing artists. During a time when the Art industry is in a state of turmoil due to COVID-19, it is important to support artists from all backgrounds. The new platform will be dedicated to the sale of artworks by the gallery’s staff, immediate family members and free lancers.

As a purely online showcase of works by artists from all regions where the gallery has locations. From an open call, the artworks span a range of medias, including painting, drawings, photography, sculpture and video works.

As part of the #artforbetter, Hauser & Wirth’s ongoing charitable initiative, the series will release 10-15 artists every two weeks from May 9 to July 18 with prices ranging from 100-20,000 USD. The series will highlight artists from across the globe, including Sarasota, Los Angeles, New York, Berlin, Bruton, London, and Zurich.
