Happy for the announcement of the next reopening of Chillida Leku
News2017-12-12

We would like to congratulate Hauser & Wirth and the Chillida family for the agreement they have reached and which has as its main axis the reopening in 2018 of the Chillida Leku.

After a time during which the artist's family was negotiating unsuccessfully with the Basque Government and with the Diputación de Guipúzcoa, in which the Chillida space was open only for private viewings, it is a source of joy for all lovers of art – and especially for those of us who admire the work of the Basque sculptor- that his work is once again within the reach of the general public.

It is also important to note that the family maintains the ownership of the collection and that it will be involved in the management of the Chillida Leku.

Likewise, having a gallery of the prestige of Hauser & Wirth will undoubtedly contribute to the continued expansion and even enhance the knowledge of Eduardo Chillida's legacy throughout the world. In fact, there is already talk of an exhibition at the gallery's New York headquarters in 2018, to celebrate this agreement.
