Archival Research

We seek to accommodate researchers requesting onsite access to the archives in our care when possible, contingent on the condition of materials and the stipulations of the archives’ lenders. In some cases, we may also be able to support remote reference requests. Research requests can take two weeks or longer to process. We recommend making requests at least one month in advance. Please email info@hauserwirthinstitute to inquire about research.
