- On September 23, Hauser & Wirth will open its first gallery in the United States with a reinvention of Allan Kaprow’s 1961 environment Yard by artist William Pope.L. Described as “a veritable mountain of black rubber auto tires and tar paper-wrapped forms through which visitors jumped and crawled,” the installation/happening will take place at 32 East 69th Street in Manhattan, the site of the work’s original creation and the address of the new Hauser & Wirth Gallery. Josiah McElheny (Season 3) and Sharon Hayes will each create their own versions of Yard at public sites in downtown Manhattan and Queens.
