NEW YORK, NY.-
As museums, galleries and cultural institutions close around the world, Hauser & Wirth
is launching a new digital programme Dispatches a homespun series of original video and online features and events that connects audiences with artists and creates opportunities for learning and engagement online.
Experimenting with new formats, the programme is designed to help us all connect in creative ways and share experiences and artistic viewpoints from around the world. Here are some highlights from the programme:
· Live events: Join Turner-Prize winning artist Martin Creed for an Instagram gig this Saturday evening; 21 March broadcast live on @hauserwirth
· 'From A Distance': Hauser & Wirth artists share filmed messages and studio visits, launching with Avery Singers artist studio challenge inviting artists to show their works in progress, and Guillermo Kuitca showcasing his home studio and drawings.
· Online exhibitions: Hauser & Wirths first ever online exhibition Louise Bourgeois: Works on Paper with works specially selected by Jerry Gorovoy, former studio assistant and head of The Easton Foundation, opens next week at hauserwirth.com
· Plus, interactive learning and community experiences launching next week, including all issues of Hauser & Wirths magazine Ursula free to access online
The new Dispatches programme complements Hauser & Wirths online viewing rooms, which are a commercial platform.
