Curator Paul Schimmel departs Hauser Wirth & Schimmel in Los Angeles

Paul Schimmel, the longtime Los Angeles curator best known for his defining tenure as the former chief curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles, has departed Hauser Wirth & Schimmel, the downtown gallery he helped establish in spring 2016. The gallery functioned as the Los Angeles outpost of the European gallery Hauser & Wirth, which has locations in London and New York.

“Iwan Wirth and Manuela Wirth, co-founders and co-presidents of Hauser & Wirth, announced today that Paul Schimmel will no longer serve as director, partner, and vice president of the gallery,” said a short statement issued Friday morning.
