#DavidReed: Tomorrow is the last chance to visit "David Reed: New Paintings" at Gagosian, 980 Madison Avenue, New York.

This is David Reed's first exhibition of new work with the gallery, following a 2017 presentation of mid-1970s paintings in "Painting Paintings (David Reed) 1975." The works in this exhibition, with their outsize dimensions, intentionally maximize the fifth- and sixth-floor gallery spaces at 980 Madison Avenue. The works are painted in either intense, otherworldly colors or primarily blacks and grays. Their graphic and glazed foundations are built up, and carved into, using a variety of seemingly spontaneous—though sometimes highly manipulated—painterly gestures, in layers of transparent paint that create a visual tension with the underlying structure.

#AmericanPastoral: Join us for a tour of “American Pastoral,” at Gagosian, Britannia Street, London, on Thursday, March 5, at 6:30pm

The group show juxtaposes modern and contemporary works with historical American landscapes ranging from Albert Bierstadt’s depiction of the sublime in “Sunset over the River” (1877) to Edward Hopper’s tranquil seaside scene, “Gloucester Harbor” (1926). Gagosian’s Alice Godwin will focus on a select grouping of exhibited works that seek to challenge the idealized vision of the American Dream that has long been a rich topic of inquiry for artists in the United States. To attend the free event, RSVP to londontours@gagosian.com. Learn more via the link in our bio.

Work by Brice Marden and David Reed is currently on view in “Marking Time: Process in Minimal Abstraction” at the Guggenheim Museum, New York, through August 2.

During the 1960s and 1970s, many artists working with abstraction rid their styles of compositional, chromatic, and virtuosic flourishes. As some turned toward such minimal approaches, a singular emphasis on their interaction with materials emerged. The resulting pieces invite viewers to imaginatively reenact aspects of the creative process. Featuring paintings and works on paper, “Marking Time” explores how drawing attention to the creative process fosters a distinctively empathetic mode of engagement.

#GagosianViewingRoom: “#721 (For Hitchcock and del Sarto),” a new painting by David Reed, features in Gagosian’s Frieze Los Angeles Online Viewing Room, which closes in less than 12 hours.

Since the outset of his career, Reed’s central preoccupation has been to challenge and reinvent how to make a painting. Consistently, his paintings present a compelling tension between the gestural and the impersonal; in recent times this has been characterized by fluid, torquing, extended marks that reveal the viscosity of paint and the speed of color and light in a flattened manner that looks photographic or filmic.

In “#721 (For Hitchcock and del Sarto),” Reed began by painting multiple strips in a gradient of tonal hues that shift from medium pink to deep red from left to right across the canvas. On top of this, he built up the surface with sweeping gestural marks in layers of lilac pink and cobalt turquoise. Reed’s palette in “#721” is far from incidental. It is informed by both “cangiante,” the Renaissance technique
On Saturday, March 7, Gagosian will host a conversation on Piero Manzoni with Urs Fischer and curator Francesco Bonami at Greene Space, New York, from 5 to 7pm. The talk celebrates the English-language release of Flaminio Gualdoni’s biography of the iconic Italian Conceptual artist, published by the gallery.

Manzoni’s brief career was one of the most radically inventive of the twentieth century, producing a body of work that continues to challenge definitions of artistic sovereignty and virtuosity. To attend the free event, RSVP to nytalks@gagosian.com. Find out more via the link in our bio.

Gagosian is pleased to announce that it has joined forces with Acquavella Galleries and Pace Gallery to handle the sale of the Donald B. Marron Family Collection. The collaboration will pay homage to Don Marron’s (1934–2019) legacy as one of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries' most passionate and erudite collectors, a pioneer of corporate collections, a family man, and a dedicated philanthropist.

In May 2020, the three galleries will organize a joint exhibition in New York to showcase the breadth of the Marron Family Collection. The exhibition will chronicle Marron’s collecting activities, including his work as a young collector in the 1960s and 1970s, as a museum steward, and as a pioneer in reinventing how corporations build art collections around a singular vision.

Marron enjoyed long personal relationships with Bill Acquavella, Larry Gagosian, and Arne Glimcher, who each contributed to shaping this significant collection over the course of several decades. The collaboration between the three galle

The show focuses primarily on his output from the early 2000s, offering a valuable chance to revisit many highly regarded and widely reproduced images that embody new ways of understanding the medium of photography in the context of emergent technological and social currents.

#DuinoElegies: "For beauty is nothing but the beginning of terror, that we are still able to bear, and we revere it so, because it calmly disdains to destroy us."
—Rainer Maria Rilke

Gagosian, 980 Madison Avenue, New York is pleased to present "Duino Elegies," a group exhibition that traces the resonance of Rainer Maria Rilke’s poetry through artworks spanning the past 150 years. The show opens on Thursday, March 5, 6–8pm.

In 1912, Rilke was invited to stay at Duino Castle—a fortress just north of Trieste, Italy. There, while standing atop a cliff overlooking the Adriatic Sea, he claimed to hear the following line: “Who, if I cried out, would hear me among the Angelic Orders?” Rilke eventually used these words to open the "Duino Elegies," a 1923 collection of ten intensely religious metaphysical poems.

Forging a direct, powerful connection to the "Elegies," Cy Twombly’s painting "Duino" (1967) marries the artist’s geometric investigations with his consistent interest in literature. In addition to Twombly,

#GagosianViewingRoom: “Silicon Valley,” a monumental 2016 painting by Alex Israel and Bret Easton Ellis, features in Gagosian’s current Online Viewing Room, now open through February 19.

For Israel and Easton Ellis, the star of their collaborative paintings is their shared hometown―Los Angeles, where the pair met in the late 2000s. After speaking with Israel for “Purple” magazine, Ellis went on to be featured in Israel’s deadpan web series interviewing prominent Angelenos, “AS IT LAYS” (2011–12). United by their shared memories of and connection to the city, the two then began collaborating on a series of works.

In these large-scale paintings, stock-photographic views of Los Angeles, selected for maximum impact and purchased online by Israel, are overlaid with Ellis’s evocative writings, whittled down from longer narratives to just a few lines, each a distinct vignette but with a shared mood. The paintings speak to a rich cultural tradition of combining words and images by local artists such as Ed Ruscha an

#RoeEthridge: "It’s more about harmony and disharmony than making meaning or illustrating a thesis. It’s synesthesia. It’s a feeling. It’s a sound. It’s a vibration."

Gagosian, 976 Madison Avenue, New York, is pleased to present “Old Fruit,” an exhibition of photographs by Roe Ethridge spanning the past twenty years, opening Wednesday, February 26, 6–8pm. This is the artist's first solo exhibition with the gallery in New York, following exhibitions in Beverly Hills, Hong Kong, and San Francisco.

Since the turn of the century, Ethridge has exercised a significant influence over young artists in particular, yet opportunities to see groupings of his early work have been rare. “Old Fruit,” which focuses primarily on his output from the early 2000s, offers a valuable chance to revisit many highly regarded and widely reproduced images that embody new ways of understanding the medium of photography in the context of emergent technological and social currents.

#GagosianViewingRoom: ”Montreuil,” a new large-scale drawing by Tatiana Trouvé, features in Gagosian’s current Online Viewing Room, now open through February 19.

Trouvé’s drawings are made up of visual fragments from the studio, the surrounding urban environment, or her personal archive of found and original images. She projects these disparate object-moments onto the picture plane and captures them there in graphite, resurrecting the intangible spaces of thought and memory alongside references to so-called reality. Her most recent series of drawings, “The Great Atlas of Disorientation,” continues this process.

This ink-and-graphite drawing on pale yellow-gray paper, “Montreuil” (2019), is from the “Great Atlas” series. Included in Trouvé’s recent exhibition at Gagosian, Beverly Hills, it was displayed in a metal armature along with other new works.

Trouvé’s sculptures and drawings often fool the viewer through their uncanny ability to capture the appearance of soft materials in stone, or the hardness of m
On February 20 and March 5, Gagosian and Yale University will host screenings of Richard Serra’s films and videos at the university's Whitney Humanities Center.

These works are drawn from the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Anthology Film Archives, New York; and the artist Joan Jonas. Chrissie Iles, curator at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, will introduce the presentation on February 20, which will be followed by a post-screening discussion between Iles and Joanna Fiduccia from Yale’s Department of the History of Art. Both events begin at 7pm. They are free and open to the public.

The program was organized in collaboration with Gagosian and Yale University’s Film & Media Studies Program, Department of the History of Art, School of Art, and Films at the Whitney supported by Barbakow Fund for Innovative Film Programs at Yale.

#FriezeArtFair: One of John Chamberlain’s distinctive metal sculptures, “Anteambulo Quincunx,” is currently on view in Gagosian’s booth at Frieze Los Angeles. The presentation, titled “How to Shrink L.A.,” explores the transformation of car culture from a metaphor for freedom and possibility to a symbol of violence and stagnation.

This 1992 work was created from contorted and intertwined strips of steel, sourced from salvaged cars and trucks. Using an instinctual process akin to those of the Abstract Expressionists, Chamberlain fitted the twisted metal parts together, discovering a harmony between their fragments.

#GagosianViewingRoom: Chris Ofili’s “Rara and Mala” features in Gagosian’s current Online Viewing Room, which presents artwork to collectors around the world for Frieze Los Angeles.

The 1994 painting exemplifies the iconic patterning and inventive use of media upon which Ofili built his oeuvre. Exuberantly colored layers of gestural brushstrokes, meandering lines, and luminous dots produce an energized atmosphere that is at once flora-filled and abstract. Two shellacked spheres of elephant dung are affixed to the lower left corner of the composition, giving it weight and depth. Instead of hanging from a wall, the canvas rests atop two additional balls of shellacked dung, grounding it in the viewer’s space.

A testament to Ofili’s wide-ranging references, in its formal and material qualities, “Rara and Mala” simultaneously evokes contemporary Indigenous Australian art by practitioners such as Bill Whiskey Tjapaltjarri and iconoclastic gestures by Conceptualists such as Piero Manzoni.

The work—ostensibly titl
#FriezeArtFair: Work by Robert Therrien is currently featured in Gagosian's presentation "How to Shrink L.A." at Frieze Los Angeles.

Often finding beauty in elements from the everyday, Therrien started noticing the sidewalks around his first studio in Los Angeles. "There were certain sidewalks that seemed special for some reason," the artist explained, "or to me became significant." The artist became intrigued with the concept of displacing those sidewalks and displaying them indoors—leading him to create "No title (sidewalk)" (2011). In preparation, Therrien studied sidewalks in depth—from their production to the minute differences that distinguished each one. Nothing if not precise, the artist spent months searching for dirt that had the color and consistency that he considered perfect.

Gagosian is pleased to present "Gemini," an exhibition of new paintings by Jennifer Guidi at Gagosian, West 24th Street, New York, opening February 28. This is her first exhibition with Gagosian in New York, following a 2018 exhibition, "Heliocentric," at the gallery’s Hong Kong location.

Guidi’s radiant, mandala-like paintings are characterized by patterns and subtle textural and chromatic shifts, forging a connection with Minimalism while evoking metaphysical themes that transcend Western traditions. In "Gemini"—named for her own astrological sign—Guidi explores dualities: light and darkness, abstraction and figuration, science and mysticism. Find out more via the link in our bio.

#GagosianViewingRoom: Ed Ruscha’s “Cosmo, Selma, Vine” features in Gagosian’s current Online Viewing Room, which presents artwork to collectors around the world for Frieze Los Angeles.

This 2000 painting is an exemplar of Ruscha’s “Metro Plots,” one of two major series that he began in the late 1990s and pursued for the better part of a decade. The “Metro Plots” distill the streets of Los Angeles—one of the artist’s central and abiding interests—into maplike diagrams whose scale renders their abstractions all the more striking. The atmospheric, stippled field of the painting conjures the pervasive smog of Los Angeles, and its austere tonality intimates a futuristic, perhaps apocalyptic, vision.

Spanning almost twelve feet, “Cosmo, Selma, Vine” is one of the three largest paintings in the series; a second, “Hollywood to Pico” (1998), is in the permanent collection of the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.

The presentation also includes works by Jean-Michel Basquiat, John Chamberlain, Urs Fischer, Theaster Gates, Piero Golia, Alex Israel, Sally Mann, Adam McEwen, Cady Noland, Sterling Ruby, Ed Ruscha, Taryn Simon, Robert Therrien, Andy Warhol, Tom Wesselmann, and others.

#GagosianViewingRoom: Albert Oehlen’s 2016 painting “Untitled (Baum 64)” is featured in Gagosian’s Online Viewing Room for Frieze Los Angeles.

Since 1989, when he made his first paintings incorporating their spindly forms, trees have become an iconic element in Oehlen’s work. He paints branches, trunks, and roots as vehicles for a methodical deflation of content. Oehlen's treatment of motifs such as trees often allows his works to hover somewhere between figuration and abstraction, one of the many reasons his work is highly desirable in the current marketplace.

This particular work is part of Oehlen’s series of “Baum” paintings, begun in 2013. Work from this series has been exhibited at Gagosian London and Gagosian New York, as well as in recent solo shows at major institutions including the Palazzo Grassi, Venice. They are also featured in the current exhibition “Carroll Dunham / Albert Oehlen: Bäume / Trees” at the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf, Germany.

#FriezeArtFair: Frieze Los Angeles opens to the public tomorrow at Paramount Picture Studios. Gagosian's presentation, titled "How to Shrink L.A.," explores the transformation of car culture from a metaphor for freedom and possibility to a symbol of violence and stagnation.

The title takes inspiration from a 1999 speculative drawing by Chris Burden that reimagines the L.A. freeway system to combat the city’s notorious traffic congestion. A longtime Topanga Canyon resident, Burden envisions a  computer-controlled highway system in which vehicles are electronically assigned a slot in lanes of varying speeds—ranging from 40 m.p.h. to 250 m.p.h.—based on the distance to their final destination. Yet as the artist wittily shows, this efficiency ultimately comes at the cost of individual autonomy.

The presentation also includes works by Jean-Michel Basquiat, John Chamberlain, Urs Fischer, Theaster Gates, Piero Golia, Alex Israel, Sally Mann, Adam McEwen, Cady Noland, Richard Prince, Sterling Ruby, Ed Ruscha, Taryn

#DanColen: "I’m interested in the fragility of the moment. When painting, each brushstroke is an opportunity to consider and preserve that moment. Each mark is a decision, from the moment the brush collides with the canvas, and each one can go in so many different directions."

Gagosian is pleased to present "HELP," an exhibition of new paintings by Dan Colen at Gagosian, Park & 75, New York, opening February 26.

Moving between diverse styles and subjects, Colen investigates the conceptual stakes of materiality and mark making. In the seven new canvases on display in "HELP," Colen uses the motif of the message in a bottle—bobbing on an open sea or washed up on a distant shore—to stage the practice of painting as an act of faith, and as a tool for communication with the unknown. These works represent the final entries in Colen’s cycle of “Disney paintings,” which derive their imagery from animated films made by the famous studio. Find out more via the link in our bio.

#GagosianViewingRoom: An exemplary painting from Neil Jenney’s “Bad Paintings” series, titled “Media and Man,” is currently presented in Gagosian’s Frieze Los Angeles Online Viewing Room.

This body of work, begun in 1969 and capped in 1970, searched for a new “realism,” one built around pertinent arrangements made through a direct engagement with the canvas. To Jenney’s mind, Pop, and its evolution into photorealism, portrayed “a bad idea, done pretty,” and he set out to do “a good idea, done terribly.” While true to the nature of this series, "Media and Man" holds a singular position in Jenney’s oeuvre. It is a work that the artist has held on to for fifty-one years since its creation, owing to its unique color scheme and solemn content. As Jenney recently stated, it is “the deepest painting I did in the 1960s.” Visit gagosianviewingroom.com to view all available works, or to contact a gallery staff member for live assistance.

An important contributor to the artistic landscape of Vienna, Polanszky makes cerebral multidisciplinary works that embrace chance occurrence. In the early 1990s, Polanszky turned his attention to the formal potential of sculpture and mixed-media painting with the series “Reconstructions“ (1991–). To make these shimmering, richly textured works, he uses salvaged industrial materials such as acrylic glass, aluminum, mirrored foil, resin, silicone, and wire, recombining them into purely aesthetic forms divorced from their original contexts. The "Reconstructions” in this exhibition demonstrate
Alberto Di Fabio’s aerial installation, "I Quanti" (2019) has been permanently installed in the Palazzo Koch in Rome. Commissioned by Banca d’Italia, the work consists of sixteen paintings on rice paper suspended above the grand staircase. Learn more via the link in our bio.

#GagosianViewingRoom: “Rockholes near the Olgas,” a contemporary Indigenous Australian painting by Bill Whiskey Tjapaltjarri, is featured in Gagosian’s latest Online Viewing Room for Frieze LA.

In May 2019 Gagosian presented the critically acclaimed exhibition "Desert Painters of Australia" in New York, featuring three generations of contemporary Indigenous Australian painting from the Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection of the University of Virginia and the collection of Steve Martin and Anne Stringfield. A sequel exhibition followed in Los Angeles later that summer.

Indigenous Australian art soon experienced a major boom—evidenced by the enthusiastic sales and new records set at the first New York auction of Aboriginal contemporary art at Sotheby’s in December 2019—which Eileen Kinsella of Artnet posited as the “Gagosian effect”.

#MarcNewson: Gagosian is pleased to present a special installation of limited-edition furniture by Marc Newson, opening this Thursday at Tarmak 22, Gstaad Saanen private airport.

The current presentation includes works from several recent series—the Chinese cloisonné, as well as the cast glass and “Murrina” works produced in the former Czech Republic—all entirely new formal experiments. The cloisonné works, produced by hand in Beijing, employ on an unprecedented scale the intricate enameling technique more often used for figurines and vases, applying it to copper chairs, lounges, and desks in diverse allover patterning, including traditional Chinese peony motifs and a signature amoebic “orgone” design.

#GagosianViewingRoom: Chris Burden’s powerful and politically charged oversize “L.A.P.D. Uniform,” which reflects on the Rodney King trial and the Los Angeles riots of 1992, is included in Gagosian’s Frieze LA Online Viewing Room.

Created in 1993, the work is one of thirty larger-than-life replicas of the L.A.P.D.’s standard wool uniform, each equipped with a regulation belt, holster, baton, handcuffs, 92F Beretta handgun, and meticulously copied police badge. Burden’s “L.A.P.D Uniforms” serve as commentary on the complicated relationship between the public and authority even today.

Gagosian was the first to exhibit “L.A.P.D Uniforms” in 1994, less than two years after the incidents that inspired it. The show marked an important and particularly political period in Burden’s career that was reflective of the social unrest across the nation at the time. In 2000–01, all thirty uniforms were exhibited in “Made in California: Art, Image, and Identity, 1900–2000” at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. The first
Brice Marden is collaborating with choreographer Pam Tanowitz and composer Kaija Saariaho to present “Four Quartets,” a dance performance based on T. S. Eliot’s modernist masterpiece published in 1943. The event takes place this Saturday, 8pm, and Sunday, 3pm, at the Center for the Art of Performance, University of California Los Angeles.

The evocative stage design centers on paintings by Marden, their exquisite colors and imagery making connections to the geographical locations of the poem cycle’s four individual parts.

#AmericanPastoral: Join us tonight, from 6 to 8pm, for the opening reception of “American Pastoral” at Gagosian, Britannia Street, London.

The exhibition presents a range of modern and contemporary works juxtaposed with historical American landscapes. From nineteenth-century industrialization to contemporary patterns of immigration, the pursuit of the American Dream has long been a rich topic of inquiry for artists in the United States. "American Pastoral" seeks to challenge this idealized vision by delving into the cultural, political, and economic tensions that lie beneath its surface. Learn more via the link in our bio.

Visit Copenhagen Contemporary to see “Carsten Holler: Reproduction,” currently on view through April 13.

In this exhibition Höller examines the theme of reproduction, adopting an approach that is at once scientific and artistic. The museum is transformed into a large, biology-based playscape where, for example, the visitors are encouraged to crawl through the pips of a die, and where slow-moving merry-go-rounds and corridors of mirrors affect their sensory perceptions.

"I can make no statement about reality clearer than my own relationship to reality."

#BlancsurBlanc: The group exhibition, “Blanc sur Blanc,” is currently on view at Gagosian, Paris, through March 7.

A century ago, Kazimir Malevich’s Suprematist paintings heralded a revolutionary new interpretation of white, in which total abstraction suggests the utopian and the infinite. Since then, artists have deployed the achromatism of whiteness in an endless range of formal and symbolic ways, evoking states of emptiness and effacement, and summoning the raw potential of the blank page.

Working in different contexts and with different ends in mind, the artists in “Blanc sur Blanc” find unexpected power and substance in what appears at first to be an absence or lack. Learn more via the link in our bio.

Tomorrow is the last chance to visit “Nam June Paik” at London’s Tate Modern. This major exhibition brings together more than two hundred works from throughout Nam June Paik’s five-decade career—from robots made from old TV screens, to his innovative video works, and all-encompassing room-size installations.

In a "Gagosian Quarterly" feature, Alexander Wolf explores the intersection of life and technology as it exists in Paik’s work, revealing the artist’s ability to balance technological concerns with humanity through music, performance, expressive painting, and images from nature.
