#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.

#FriezeArtFair: Adam McEwen’s 2019 piece, “Sudden Vision,” is currently on view in Gagosian’s booth at Frieze Los Angeles.

This new work combines McEwen’s series of inkjet prints on cellulose sponge with his sculptural graphite works. Here a life-size graphite drum cymbal is fixed to the surface of an image of a tunnel, which has been turned on its side.

Titled “How to Shrink L.A.,” the presentation explores the transformation of car culture from a metaphor for freedom and possibility to a symbol of violence and stagnation.

#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.

#FriezeArtFair: Visit Gagosian's booth at Frieze Los Angeles to see "How to Shrink L.A.," a presentation exploring the transformation of car culture from a metaphor for freedom and possibility to a symbol of violence and stagnation.

Taking Los Angeles’s system of highways as a literal and figurative backdrop, the selection includes Richard Prince’s full-scale car sculpture "Untitled" (2008) and Chris Burden’s ominously oversize "L.A.P.D. Uniform" (1993). 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."
—Dan Colen

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.

#RudolfPolanszky: “When we say that something makes sense—that is interesting. But I do not want to make sense, because this sense is a definition made by somebody else.”
—Rudolf Polanszky

Gagosian is pleased to present paintings and sculptures by Rudolf Polanszky dating from 2014 to 2019. This exhibition inaugurates his representation by the gallery and opens on Tuesday, March 3, 6–8pm at 541 West 24th Street, New York.

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

#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”.

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

#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.

Titled after Philip Roth’s 1997 novel, "American Pastoral" is a group exhibition that seeks to challenge this idealized vision by delving into the cultural, political, and economic tensions that lie beneath its surface. The exhibition presents a range of modern and contemporary works juxtaposed with historical American landscapes. Learn more via the link in our bio.

#AlexIsrael: Visit Gagosian, Grosvenor Hill, London, to see “Alex Israel: Always On My Mind.” The exhibition of new "Self-Portraits" by Israel is currently on view through March 14.

In this ongoing series of photorealistic paintings, Israel frames quintessential Los Angeles scenery and snippets from his daily life inside crisp cut-out silhouettes of his own profile. The artist addresses the effortless visual gloss that twenty-first-century image culture and social media demand of their participants. This is the first exhibition dedicated solely to Israel’s ”Self-Portraits," as well as his first ever solo exhibition in London. Learn more via the link in our bio.

#GerhardRichterPrints: Visit ”Gerhard Richter: Prints” at Gagosian, 976 Madison Avenue, New York, before it closes next Saturday, February 15.

The exhibition presents editioned works by Richter spanning fifty years. Editions are a central feature of Richter’s practice. He modifies details and sometimes entire compositions from his oeuvre, producing artworks that are simultaneously self-referential and new. Divergent in medium, scale, and style, the editions mirror Richter’s mercurial artistic processes and explore the dynamic relationship between source image and pictorial representation.

#DavidReed: On Thursday, February 20, David Reed and curator Jeffrey Weiss will lead a tour of the exhibition, “David Reed: New Paintings.” The event will take place at Gagosian, 980 Madison Avenue, New York, at 6pm.

During the tour, the pair will discuss the outsize works in the show, some over a decade in the making, and how they respond to the galleries at 980 Madison Avenue, testing and maximizing their spatial boundaries. Indexically numbered rather than titled, the works are painted in either intense, otherworldly colors or primarily blacks and grays, as if contrasting the delirious possibilities of the full-color moving image with the austerity of grayscale. To attend the free event, RSVP to nytours@gagosian.com. Space is limited.

#JohnMason: Visit Gagosian, Park & 75, New York, to see an exhibition of ceramic works by the late John Mason. ”Geometric Force" is on view through February 15.

The works in this exhibition, which span Mason’s early career to the years preceding his death at age ninety-one in 2019, attest to the range and vocabulary of his innovation and experimentation in clay.

Often cited as a contributor to the “revolution in clay,” Mason changed the perception of the medium from craft into fine art, mixing Western and Eastern influences. The material result is something completely sui generis and hard to trace—untethered to a single genre or movement, yet related to many. Learn more via the link in our bio.

"My works continually mutate under different politics, economies, cultures and times. . . . These disruptions and time’s passage are part of the work."
—Taryn Simon

Happy birthday to Taryn Simon who was born on this day, February 4, in New York.

Work by Simon goes on view this week at the Rubin Museum of Art in New York. “Measure Your Existence,” which opens on Friday, questions and expands the Buddhist concept of impermanence through artworks by six contemporary artists who explore duration, survival, memory, fate, history, loss, disappearance, and reappearance.

#GagosianQuarterly: "A true library is a model of creativity in process; an open work of collaborative art, regardless of who holds the key. A library with nothing to add is not a library at all."

Today is the last chance to see “Sterling Ruby” at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Miami.

The exhibition features more than one hundred works in an array of mediums spanning more than two decades of the artist's practice. Since his earliest works, Sterling Ruby has investigated the role of the artist as an outsider. Critiquing the structures of modernism and traditional institutions, he addresses the repressed underpinnings of contemporary culture and the coding of power and violence.

The show will travel to the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, where it opens on February 26. Follow the link in our bio to learn more.
