Hauser & Wirth Menorca is an art centre combining art, education and conservation on the natural setting of Illa del Rei, an island in Mahon harbour. The art centre presents an exhibition programme spanning ambitious new commissions by gallery artists across all media. Following a conservation project, Hauser & Wirth sensitively repurposed the existing 18th century outbuildings of a naval hospital to create the 1,500 sq.m art centre, which opened in 2021 and welcomed over 58,000 visits during the first season.

Hauser & Wirth Menorca comprises an exhibition space with eight galleries and an outdoor sculpture trail featuring works by Louise Bourgeois, Eduardo Chillida, Joan Miró, Franz West, Martin Creed, Phyllida Barlow and Camille Henrot. A garden by the acclaimed landscape designer Piet Oudolf runs alongside the gallery buildings, incorporating native perennials and plants suited to the Mediterranean climate. The on-site restaurant Cantina, run by local restaurant and vineyard Binifadet, serves seasonal and local produce. The gallery shop is found in the same building, presenting art publications and crafts by local makers.

Rashid Johnson

Rashid Johnson’s first solo exhibition in Spain will take over the entire exhibition galleries at Hauser & Wirth Menorca and introduce new bodies of work. The exhibition will include his newly developed Seascape Paintings as well as new bronze sculpture, alongside Bruise Paintings and Surrender Paintings, the latter of which is the latest offering to evolve from the iconography of his long-established Anxious Men series.

The exhibition is entitled ‘Sodade’ in reference to a Cape Verdean song from 1950s, popularized by Cesária Évora, that narrates a profound emotional state of longing on ‘the long way’ to São Tomé. Johnson’s exhibition draws from historical narratives around journeys and displacement to explore recurrent themes of anxiety and escapism and speak to the times we live in.
