Hauser & Wirth and Fort Gansevoort to Co-Represent Winfred Rembert Estate
By Maximilìano Duron - January 19, 2023
Mega-gallery Hauser & Wirth will team up with New York’s Fort Gansevoort to represent the estate of artist Winfred Rembert, who has had a surge in interest in his art and life in the past two years.
Hauser & Wirth will stage its first Rembert show at one of its New York spaces next month. He was the subject of a solo exhibition at Fort Gansevoort in October 2021, just months after his death that March at age 75. It was his first solo show in New York in nearly a decade.
In a statement about the partnership, Fort Gansevoort founder Adam Shopkorn said, “Since 2003, I have closely watched Marc Payot and Iwan and Manuela Wirth build an outstanding art gallery by putting artists first. I made a promise to Winfred shortly before he passed away that I would do all I could to share his remarkable art and story with the world, and I am confident that by collaborating closely with our good friends at Hauser & Wirth, we will continue to introduce Rembert’s vision to a broader audience in the United States and beyond.”
