May issue, where we are focusing on Art, Architecture & Escape at a time when I think we could all use a little escapism…

Taking centre stage in this issue is our exclusive first look at Hauser & Wirth’s new exhibition-and-more space at 542 West 22nd Street, New York. Designed by Annabelle Selldorf, who has also created this month’s limited-edition cover, this is Hauser & Wirth’s first purpose-built, ground-up building, and a major milestone in their ambition to deliver museum-quality viewing experiences. Photographer Brigitte Lacombe documented the building as it neared completion, and shot a series of iconic portraits of 14 artists from the gallery’s roster, from Lorna Simpson to George Condo, which forms an illustrious celebration of New York’s creative energy and vibrant art scene.
