About this Event

Join us for a free introduction to Hauser & Wirth Somerset, and discover more about the architecture, gardens and current exhibitions: ‘Don McCullin. The Stillness of Life’ and ‘Not Vital: SCARCH’.

Each Thursday at 11 am, one of our gallery directors will provide guests with a general introduction, the ideal platform from which to explore Hauser & Wirth Somerset in your own time.

Current exhibition ‘Don McCullin: The Stillness of Life’ is a focused presentation of over sixty landscape photographs, mapping Sir Don McCullin CBE’s intimate relationship with the local landscape of Somerset and continued passion for global travel since the sixties. This personal survey depicts scenes across the United Kingdom, Europe and Asia, revealing McCullin’s innermost feelings through powerful compositions of wild heavens, haunting vistas and meditative still lifes.

‘Not Vital: SCARCH’ is a solo exhibition by Not Vital, organised with Olivier Renaud-Clément and Giorgia von Albertini. The multidisciplinary exhibition will highlight the Swiss artist’s deep-rooted interest in the relationship between architecture, landscape and human perception. The works on display will span Not Vital’s expansive oeuvre over the past five decades, ranging from early rudimental works from the 1960s, portrait sculptures, mixed-media works on paper and socially-driven installations relating to his global projects.

The talk will begin on the terrace at 11 am. Please note, the group size will be limited to a small group and visitors should remain aware of social distancing onsite.

This is a free event, but must be booked in advance.

Hauser & Wirth Somerset collaborates and works in partnership with many local organisations. Our current charitable giving is shared between Black Swan Arts in Frome, Bruton Food Drop and The Balsam Centre in Wincanton, supporting their community activities in response to COVID-19 through cultural, social and health initiatives. Entrance to the garden is free, however if you would like to donate, please do so when booking.
