The Hauser & Wirth Gallery is staging “Artists for New York,” a major initiative to raise funds in support of a group of pioneering non-profit visual arts organizations across New York City that have been profoundly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. “Artists for New York” includes over 100 art works committed by major artists, which will be sold to benefit these institutions that have played a significant role in shaping the city’s rich cultural history and will play a critical role in its future recovery. The institutions targeted include Artists Space, The Bronx Museum of the Arts, Dia Art Foundation, The Drawing Center, El Museo del Barrio, High Line Art, MoMA PS1, New Museum, Public Art Fund, Queens Museum, SculptureCenter, The Studio Museum in Harlem, Swiss Institute, and White Columns.
As of yesterday, Hauser & Wirth is presenting all of the artworks donated to “Artists for New York” to a global audience online, which you can see here. Many of the artworks will also be shown to the public at Hauser & Wirth’s two New York gallery spaces at 542 West 22nd Street and 32 East 69th Street, from October 6th to the 22nd.
