While the Arts District gets buzzier by the day, the arrival of Hauser Wirth & Schimmel, the massive new spin-off of the Swiss gallery Hauser & Wirth, has transformed the neighborhood. Here, occupying a block-wide stretch of 19th-and 20th-century buildings that previously served as a flour mill complex, the space feels anything but a traditional white-box gallery. The international gallery tapped Paul Schimmel, formerly the chief curator of LA’s Museum of Contemporary Art, as a partner. Look for pieces by important local artists like Paul McCarthy, Mark Bradford, and Richard Jackson. Through the end of the year, catch a survey of Austrian painter Maria Lassnig. The multi-use space also includes an education center, ARTBOOK shop, and even a community garden.
