Hauser & Wirth
Hauser & Wirth is a pioneering world-class gallery and multi-purpose arts center which acts as a destination for experiencing art, architecture, and the remarkable Somerset landscape through new and innovative exhibitions of contemporary art. An impressive landscaped garden, designed by internationally renowned landscape architect Piet Oudolf, sits behind the gallery buildings. It also includes a changing programme of outdoor sculptures, and houses the Radić Pavilion, designed by Smiljan Radić.
Centered around a core belief in conservation, education and sustainability, Hauser & Wirth Somerset offers a wide variety of special events including talks, seminars, workshops and screenings, as well as an extensive learning programme for local schools, young people and families. The center also provides resources including a bookshop and dedicated learning room.
Hauser & Wirth Somerset supports an immersive artist-in-residence programme, encouraging artists to benefit from the idyllic surroundings and to integrate with the local community.
On-site restaurant, Roth Bar & Grill, serves seasonal, locally sourced produce, and is replete with works of art including a site-specific bar created by Björn and Oddur Roth, the son and grandson of artist Dieter Roth.
The center is located on Durslade Farm, a working free-range farm, providing produce for Roth Bar & Grill. Durslade Farmhouse, the original six-bedroom farmhouse, is available to rent for short stays.
The center is open with free admission to the public, six days a week, throughout the year.
