#DonaldJudd: "Stretching in total 80 feet across and 12 feet up the longest wall at Gagosian, the result is arguably the most communicative, extravagantly available work of Judd's career: a great flutter of planes, columns and edges—the cardinal components of Judd's language—and shifts in light and shadow."
—Roberta Smith, New York Times

The exhibition "Artwork: 1980" at Gagosian, West 21st Street, New York, has been extended through July 11. Follow the link in our bio to read more.

#GagosianQuarterly: "Our life is half natural and half technological. Half-and-half is good."
—Nam June Paik

More than ever before, we are relying on technology to stay connected to the people in our lives. In an article for "Gagosian Quarterly," Alexander Wolf explores the intersection of life and technology as it exists in the work of Nam June Paik, revealing the artist’s ability to balance technological concerns with humanity through music, performance, expressive painting, and images from nature. Read the piece via the link in our bio.

#GagosianQuarterly: Looking for something to watch? Visit "Gagosian Quarterly" to see journalist and curator Judith Benhamou-Huet lead a tour of the exhibition "Urs Fischer: Leo," which was on view at Gagosian, Paris, last year.

The show presented Fischer’s newest candle portrait, which depicts Leonardo DiCaprio with his parents, George DiCaprio and Irmelin Indenbirken. "Leo (George & Irmelin)" melted slowly over the course of the exhibition, serving as both a portrait of—and meditation on—the passing of time. Follow the link in our bio to watch the video.

#GagosianQuarterly: Head to "Gagosian Quarterly" for a behind-the-scenes glimpse of Dan Colen's studio in Brooklyn, New York.

Ben Eastham visited the artist in 2018 while he was preparing for an exhibition at Gagosian, Beverly Hills. The show, "High Noon," presented Colen's "Desert" paintings (2016–18)—lush yet schematic interpretations of stills from Chuck Jones’s animated shorts featuring Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner.

#DanColen: In his exhibition "HELP," Dan 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. Colen looks to the fantasy drama "The Rescuers" (1977). He renders ocean and horizon in bright primary colors, retaining the hard graphic outlines characteristic of the cartoon form while still infusing the paintings’ ripples and waves with a sense of movement. These works were presented for the first time at Gagosian, Park & 75, New York, earlier this year. Learn more via the link in our bio.

With all our galleries temporarily closed, look forward to more images, videos, and editorial to stay connected to our exhibitions online.

#GagosianOnline: Mary Weatherford’s 2019 work “Splendor in the Grass” is featured in our Art Basel Hong Kong Online presentation, which closes soon.

Weatherford makes large paintings comprising grounds of spontaneously sponged paint on heavy linen canvases, often surmounted by one or more carefully shaped and placed colored neon tubes. These works expand the expressive potential of neon. Though appropriated by earlier artists for its consumerist and linguistic connotations, in works such as “Splendor in the Grass” the industrial material is transformed into a radically new form of abstract, pictorial drawing.

#GagosianOnline: Jia Aili's 2019 painting "Youth and Ultramarine" features in our Art Basel Hong Kong Online presentation, now accessible at gagosian.com/fairs.

A central figure in contemporary art in China, Jia creates dynamic compositions that both emerge from and challenge art historical assumptions in the context of a rapidly changing world. In works such as "Youth and Ultramarine," which move between genre painting, portraiture, fantasy, and abstraction, he reflects on the dramatic modernization of society while probing the vulnerabilities of the existential human condition.

#OlivierMosset: Over the past half century, Olivier Mosset has honed a visual language that channels Minimalist and Abstract Expressionist strategies while pursuing an irreverent, self-referential agenda. Often repeating motifs and colors across multiple large canvases, he consciously suppresses subjectivity, symbolism, and metaphor.

In this exhibition, Mosset presents four canvases that are identical in shape and size. The works reward intense scrutiny; at first, all four compositions appear to be painted solid black, yet a closer look reveals almost imperceptibly subtle tonal variations between one work and the next. Follow the link in our bio to read more about the exhibition, which opened at Gagosian, Geneva, earlier this year.

#GagosianOnline: Tetsuya Ishida’s 1996 painting, "Derelict Building Worker’s Chair,” is included in our Art Basel Hong Kong Online presentation, now accessible at gagosian.com/fairs.

Ishida came of age as a painter during Japan’s “lost decade”—a time of nationwide economic recession that lasted through the 1990s. In paintings such as "Derelict Building Worker’s Chair,” Ishida provided vivid allegories of the challenges to Japanese life and morale, charged with a dark Orwellian absurdity.

#GagosianOnline: “Kaikai” is one of two sculptures by Takashi Murakami featured in our Art Basel Hong Kong Online presentation, now accessible at gagosian.com/fairs.

The rabbitlike sculpture is presented alongside the three-eyed, smiling “Kiki.” Created between 2018 and 2020, both sculptures are made from fiberglass-reinforced plastic covered in gold leaf. These cute yet imposing characters illustrate Murakami’s interest in paradox, as “kikikaikai” describes something that is dangerous yet appealing.

#GagosianOnline: Georg Baselitz’s 2019 painting "Die andere Seite vom Ölfleck" is featured in our Art Basel Hong Kong Online presentation, now accessible through gagosian.com/fairs.

This new work, from Baselitz’s recent series of gold-on-black paintings, signals a renunciation of corporeality with its repetition of simplified forms to the point of abstraction. For "Die andere Seite vom Ölfleck," the artist did not paint the figures; he painted negative space, in gold paint, then pressed a canvas covered in black paint onto the canvas laid out on the floor.

#DonaldJudd: “Space is made by an artist or architect; it is not found and packaged. It is made by thought.”
—Donald Judd

Measuring eighty feet in width, untitled, 1980, is Donald Judd's largest single work in plywood. Made from Douglas fir, the work consists of a gridded construction in three parts, each section defined by horizontal and diagonal planes. In its fusion of wall- and floor-based formats, the work confirms Judd’s mastery of light and space. It manifests his desire to realize “the simple expression of complex thought,” an idea he considered independent of the Minimalist label to which his work was—to his displeasure—often linked.

This work went on view at Gagosian, West 21st Street, New York, earlier this month. This was the first time the piece had been exhibited in New York since it was originally shown at Castelli Gallery in 1981. Learn more via the link in our bio.

#GagosianOnline: This new painting by Zeng Fanzhi is featured in our Art Basel Hong Kong Online presentation at gagosian.com/fairs.

For the past decade, landscape has been a central focus of Zeng’s art. In his highly tactile scenes, the details of representation often overlap seamlessly with qualities of abstraction, as in certain traditional Chinese aesthetic objects. All are expressionistically rendered with extraordinary attention to the material nuances of the painted surface. Zeng’s fictitious place is at once luminous and bleak—unearthly bursts of vivid color are trapped in snaking brambles that obstruct yet hold the gaze.

#GagosianOnline: This 2020 painting, "727 Variant," is one of three works by Takashi Murakami currently on view in our Art Basel Hong Kong Online presentation at gagosian.com/fairs.

Since the early 1990s Murakami has invented characters that combine aspects of popular cartoons from Japan, Europe, and the US—from his first Mr. DOB, who sometimes serves as a stand-in for the artist himself, to various anime characters and smiling flowers, bears, and lions. These figures in his works act as icons and symbols—hosts for more complex themes of violence, technology, and fantasy.

#DuinoElegies: This group exhibition, "Duino Elegies," traces the resonance of Rainer Maria Rilke’s poetry through artworks spanning the past 150 years.

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.

This exhibition went on view earlier this month at Gagosian, 980 Madison Avenue, New York. Follow the link in our bio to view more work from the show online.

#GagosianOnline: Tom Wesselmann's "Still Life with Odalisque and Goldfish” is now on view in our Art Basel Hong Kong Online presentation at gagosian.com/fairs.

Throughout the 1990s, Wesselmann expanded upon the two major series that he developed in the 1960s and 1970s: the “Great American Nude” and “Still Life” paintings. “Still Life with Odalisque and Goldfish” (1998–99) intriguingly joins the two series. Here, the classic still life subjects of fruit in a bowl and flowers dominate the background, while a reclining female nude and a goldfish in a bowl of water occupy the foreground.

#RudolfPolanszky: In the early 1990s, Rudolf 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. Polanszky often leaves his raw materials outside, letting the elements help determine the work’s final form.

Polanszky's “Reconstructions” went on view earlier this month at Gagosian, 541 West 24th Street, New York, inaugurating the artist’s representation by the gallery. Follow the link in our bio to learn more about Polansky’s paintings and sculptures.

In the San Francisco gallery, new paintings by Georg Baselitz are currently hanging in the exhibition “What if…”. The oil-on-canvas compositions in the show mark a significant development in Baselitz’s technique. The paintings are created with a transfer method: he paints on a piece of unstretched canvas and then presses a second canvas onto the first to make an impression in oils. Through this technique, Baselitz continues to expand his own practice of painting and mark making, finding new ways to treat established subjects. Follow the link in our bio to learn more about these new works.

#GagosianQuarterly: Watch Edmund de Waal speak about his two-part exhibition “psalm,” presented in Venice last year, in a recent “Gagosian Quarterly” video.

For the show, de Waal constructed a small library that houses two thousand books written by exiled authors from Ovid’s time to the present day. The external walls of the “library of exile” are inscribed with a new text piece listing the lost and erased libraries of the world. Inside, embedded in the bookshelves, is a quartet of de Waal’s large-scale vitrines, containing porcelain vessels and page-like brackets of steel.

The “library of exile" is now on view at the British Museum, London, through September 8. Follow the link in our bio to find out more.

"By the time Piero Manzoni died in 1963 at the early age of 29, he had pioneered a genre of painting without color, canned his breath and excrement as art works, issued numerous manifestos, signed living people as artworks, and had managed (in a pre-internet world) to cement his international reputation."
—Skot Armstrong, Artillery Magazine

Last week, "Artillery Magazine" reviewed "Piero Manzoni: An Artist’s Life," the highly anticipated biography of the celebrated Italian artist, published by Gagosian in collaboration with the Fondazione Piero Manzoni.

#GagosianQuarterly: For a recent “Gagosian Quarterly” feature, Michael Craig-Martin speaks with Samuel Gross about his depictions of everyday objects and the building blocks of his visual vocabulary, as part of artgenève’s art talks 2020.

Colorful flags by Craig-Martin were installed among the booths of artgenève earlier this year. The flags—depicting mass-produced everyday items, such as sunglasses and shoes—probe the relationship between object and image, harnessing the human capacity to imagine absent forms through symbols and pictures. In July 2019, the work was installed in London, as part of Art in Mayfair, organized by the Royal Academy of Arts and Bond Street.

#RichardArtschwager: Today is the last chance to see “Live in Your Head: Richard Artschwager’s Cabinet of Curiosities” at Gagosian, Davies Street, London.

The exhibition spans the five decades of Richard Artschwager’s career and was conceived specifically in response to the Davies Street gallery space, with its wide plate glass window giving on to a busy Mayfair thoroughfare. The installation is visible from the street, its components arranged like objects in a Joseph Cornell box.

Artschwager revealed an empirical fascination with artifacts both extraordinary and banal, deriving surreal results from everyday sources, whether through shifts in scale or transpositions of forms from one material to another. Learn more via the link in our bio.

#BlancsurBlanc: Tomorrow is the last chance to see the group exhibition, “Blanc sur Blanc,” at Gagosian, Paris.

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.

A major exhibition of Sterling Ruby’s work is now on view at ICA Boston through May 26, 2020.

Since his earliest works, 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. This exhibition features more than seventy works spanning more than two decades of his practice in an array of mediums, including paintings, collage, ceramics, sculptures, and quilts.

For a recent issue of “Gagosian Quarterly,” Ruby spoke with art critic Alessandro Rabottini about his series of sculptures “ACTS.” These works were presented at Gagosian, Britannia Street, London, last year.
