Hauser & Wirth is proud to announce the opening of its new Zurich space with an exhibition of works by Subodh Gupta, including monumental new sculptures and the 'Cosmos' paintings, first shown at PinchukArtCentre, Kiev, Ukraine.

Gupta's ideas take shape in a variety of different media, such as steel, bronze, marble and paint. Materials are encountered for their aesthetic properties and as conceptual signifiers carrying a wealth of connotations. The mass-produced utensils that have played such a prominent role in Gupta's art offer an ambiguous symbolism: whilst they are seen by those in the West as exotic and representative of Indian culture, to those in India they are ubiquitous items, used daily in almost every household. Gupta harnesses these hybrid associations, allowing them to resonate in the viewer's mind and has made steel a subject in its own right.

This exhibition is Hauser & Wirth's inaugural show at Hubertus Exhibitions, a raw industrial space that will be the temporary home for the gallery during the refurbishment of the former Löwenbräu brewery building. Together with Hauser & Wirth Zürich, the Migros Museum für zeitgenössische Kunst, Galerie Bob Van Orsouw and Kunstgriff bookshop will all be based at Hubertus Exhibitions until the Löwenbräu renovation is completed in 2012. Hubertus Exhibitions is located at Albisriederstrasse 199A, 8047 Zurich and can be visited online at
