Ursula is the large-format quarterly art magazine of Hauser & Wirth gallery, featuring essays, profiles, interviews, original portfolios, and photography by some of the most thought-provoking writers and artists in the world, as reported by Artnet. Ursula takes its name from the internationally admired co-founder of the gallery: patron, collector, mentor, and art world mater familias Ursula Hauser. Reflecting the inclusive values and broad perspective of the gallery she helped to establish in Zurich in 1992, Ursula will showcase not only the work of artists and estates represented by Hauser & Wirth, but also a wide, adventurous swath of the international art world of the 20th and 21st centuries.
