They are beyond question the main exhibition with regards to the advanced commercial centre, they were the primary display to build up a distributing house equaling the conventional craftsmanship distributors with north of 500 distributions up to now, there is their Gagosian Quarterly magazine, online articles and other social projects set apart by straightforwardness, verifiable grants, research, market bits of knowledge and that’s just the beginning.
The quantities of Gagosian are just staggering as they grow out of the meaning of the workmanship exhibition.

An interesting and praiseworthy part of Hauser and Wirth vision with regards to these exhibition areas is their liking towards design and social legacy. Rather than building new cutting edge display spaces, they reestablish verifiable structures, returning to their surroundings and add to a helpful methodology towards social destinations and legacy issues, associating contemporary workmanship with history.
