“Keith Haring | Jean-Michel Basquiat: Crossing Lines” is currently on view at the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, through April 13.

Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat changed the art world of the 1980s through their idiosyncratic imagery, radical ideas, and complex sociopolitical commentary, creating an indelible legacy that continues to influence contemporary visual and popular culture today. The exhibition surveys each artist’s tragically short, yet prolific career through more than two hundred artworks, including works created in public spaces, painting, sculpture, objects, works on paper, photographs, and more.

#DonaldJudd: On the occasion of a major retrospective of Donald Judd's work at The Museum of Modern Art, Gagosian is pleased to announce "Artwork: 1980" at West 21st Street, New York, opening March 12.

The exhibition will present a single work by Judd, his largest work in plywood. Made from Douglas fir, it consists of a gridded construction in three parts, each section defined by horizontal and diagonal planes. The piece, measuring eighty feet in width, will be installed across the full length of the back wall of the gallery. This will be the work’s first exhibition in New York since it was originally shown, at Castelli Gallery, Greene Street, in 1981. The show will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue.

Presented in collaboration with the Judd Foundation, "Artwork: 1980" is part of a program of exhibitions, events and publication launches that will take place throughout the duration of the MoMA retrospective. Read more about the program on ARTnews via the link in our bio.

An exhibition of work by Mary Weatherford opens this Saturday at the Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College, Saratoga Springs.

Over the past three decades, Weatherford has developed a rich and diverse painting practice, from her early-1990s target paintings based on operatic heroines to her expansive, gestural canvases overlaid with neon glass tubing. “Mary Weatherford: Canyon—Daisy—Eden” presents a survey of the artist's career, drawing from several distinct bodies of work made between 1989–2017. Showing Weatherford experimenting with color, scale, and materials, these works together reveal the continuity of the artist's interest in human experience, both personal and historical.

#SimonHantai: The exhibition "LES NOIRS DU BLANC, LES BLANCS DU NOIR” has been extended through March 21 at Gagosian, Le Bourget. The show features black-and-white paintings and prints by Simon Hantaï dating between 1951 and 1997.

Hantaï is best known for originating the technique of “pliage” (folding), in which a canvas is crumpled and knotted, uniformly painted over, and then spread out to reveal a matrix of abstract alternations between pigment and ground. Unmediated by color, the monochromatic paintings and prints in the exhibition celebrate the aesthetic form of the crease and document Hantaï’s evolving relationship with the act of painting.

“The new works were, on some level, a long time in the making. Mr. Ruscha bought the drum skins almost 50 years ago at a leather store in Los Angeles. They were rejects, stacked on a clearance table because they had noticeable flaws, and he’s carried them with him ever since.”
—M.H. Miller, New York Times

Earlier this month, the “New York Times” featured an interview with Ed Ruscha. The artist talked to M.H. Miller about his current exhibition, "Ed Ruscha: Drum Skins," currently on view at Austin's Blanton Museum of Art through July 12. This show features more than a dozen new works by Ruscha painted on found drum heads. Ruscha sourced the paintings’ visual iconography and language from the American vernacular.

#ManRay: An exhibition of work by Man Ray is now on view at Gagosian, San Francisco, through February 29. Developed in collaboration with the Man Ray Trust, “Man Ray: The Mysteries of Château du Dé” presents three key films by the artist: "Emak Bakia" (1926); "L’étoile de mer" (1928); and “Les Mystères du Château du Dé” (1929), the longest of his film works.

During his storied career, Man Ray, a multidisciplinary artist with a rare breadth, worked in a variety of mediums, including painting, photography, sculpture, printmaking, film, poetry, and prose. While for him photography and painting were paramount, his work in early film and cinema is often overlooked. Find out more via the link in our bio.

#AlexIsrael: Wallpaper*’s February issue presents a limited-edition cover by Alex Israel, who was chosen as one of the judges for the magazine's Design Awards 2020.

The cover design, featuring a die-cut hole in the shape of the artist’s profile, references Israel’s “Self-Portraits,” a series of paintings on shaped fiberglass panels. These works examine the myth of the American West and an expanded idea of entertainment—two parallel narratives interwoven in the fabric of Israel’s hometown that also continue to inflect our culture at large. An exhibition presenting new “Self-Portraits” is currently on view at Gagosian, Grosvenor Hill, London.

#AmericanPastoral: The group exhibition, “American Pastoral,” is now open at Gagosian, Britannia Street, London.

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. In the exhibition, historical American landscapes are juxtaposed with modern and contemporary works, ranging from Thomas Cole’s “Storm on the Hudson” (c. 1840) to Ed Ruscha’s “Hydraulic Empire” (2019). This new painting by Ruscha refers to the term for a civilization whose governing body maintains power through exclusive control over water access.

#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.

#YZKami: An exhibition of new works by Y.Z. Kami is now on view at Gagosian, Rome, through March 21. "Night Paintings" is the artist’s first solo exhibition in Italy.

Kami’s tenebrous "Night Paintings" (2017–) are composed largely from a single shade of indigo—said to be the color of the night—mixed with various gradations of white. Each canvas is filled with blue-whitish apparitions that float just past the limits of materiality and concrete representation. These outlines shift between seemingly solid, liquid, and gaseous states—an osseous structure melts into a milky swirl, which in turn evaporates into a coil of smoke—yet their true forms and references ultimately remain veiled beneath hazy brushwork.

This exhibition celebrates the partnership between the Réunion des Musées Métropolitains and the Fondation Gandur pour l’Art by bringing together works painted by Simon Hantaï. Between 1951 and 1959 the artist’s pictorial inventions elevated the canvas to act alongside the painter; this idea subsequently opened a path for younger artists to consider new ways of painting.

Work by Richard Prince is included in the exhibition “Feelings: Kunst und Emotion,” currently on view at the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich.

One hundred paintings, objects, and films from contemporary artists invite the viewer to intuitively approach art from an emotional perspective. What does art provoke in us? To what extent does our view of art depend on our personal experiences and memories? This exhibition seeks to encourage this direct dialogue between artwork and viewer in order to stimulate an intense emotional engagement. Work by Gregory Crewdson and Cindy Sherman is also included.

#AmericanPastoral: Gagosian is pleased to present the group exhibition, “American Pastoral,” opening on January 23 at Gagosian, Britannia Street, London.

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. For many, this notion is encapsulated by the imagined tranquility and comfort of rural life—an aspiration arising from the Western tradition of landscape painting, with its picturesque, arcadian lands and idyllic communities.

Titled after Philip Roth’s 1997 novel about the social discord that undermines the life of an outwardly untroubled New Jersey family, "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. Modern and contemporary works are juxtaposed with historical American landscapes, ranging from Albert Bierstadt’s depiction of the sublime

Piero Golia’s “Roman Trilogy” will be performed this Friday, January 18, at La Fondazione Roma.

This is the third and final performance of the work which premiered at Académie de France à Roma - Villa Medicis in 2002, and was performed there again in 2016. In “Roman Trilogy,” Golia uses language, performers, music, fire, and more to expose the public to a “total work of art,” or “Gesamtkunstwerk,” an unforgettable experience. During the event, Golia will leave a “sign” on the floor of La Fondazione Roma, which visitors can view through March 21. Learn more via the link in our bio.

#RichardArtschwager: Join us tonight from 6–8pm for the opening of “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 will be visible from the street, its components arranged like objects in a Joseph Cornell box.

The artist’s work engages and activates the environment it inhabits, often guiding viewers’ attention to the discreet or overlooked. In making art, 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.

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. “Blanc sur Blanc” includes works by Jean (Hans) Arp, Lucio Fontana, Y.Z. Kami, Cy Twombly, and Rachel Whiteread, among others. Learn more via the link in our bio.

“My photographs are ‘not abstract.’ Ultimately they are always identifiable. Photography in general simply cannot disengage from the object.”
—Andreas Gursky

#JohnMason: ”Geometric Force," an exhibition of ceramic works by the late John Mason, is now on view at Gagosian, Park & 75, New York, 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.

#PenoneSF: In San Francisco this week for FOG Design+Art? Two life-size bronze sculptures cast from fallen trees by Giuseppe Penone are currently installed in Fort Mason's Great Meadow.

In each work, a bronze cast is combined with natural elements, evoking the vital forces and life cycle of the surrounding growth. The project is presented in partnership with the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy and the Golden Gate National Recreation Area through the Art in the Parks program.

In a recent “Gagosian Quarterly” video Penone discusses what drew him to this landscape overlooking San Francisco Bay and the concepts behind the installation. Follow the link in our bio to watch the video.

#ManRay: Join us tomorrow from 6–8pm for the opening of “Man Ray: The Mysteries of Château du Dé,” at Gagosian, San Francisco.

Developed in collaboration with the Man Ray Trust, this exhibition presents three key films by Man Ray: "Emak Bakia" (1926); "L’étoile de mer" (1928); and “Les Mystères du Château du Dé” (1929), the longest of his film works. In addition, the show includes objects, drawings, and photography.

Throughout his vast body of work, Man Ray alluded to relationships between the real and the fictive, the literal and the imaginative, with a deft mastery over the liminal territory between the abstract and the figurative form. Follow the link in our bio for more info.

#RichardArtschwager: Join us for the opening of “Live in Your Head: Richard Artschwager’s Cabinet of Curiosities” this Thursday, 6–8pm, at Gagosian, Davies Street, London.

The exhibition spans the five decades of Artschwager’s career, and is the first in London since 2003. Focusing on the structures of perception, and conflating the visual world of images (painting) with the tactile world of objects (sculpture), his inspirations and points of departure range from counterintelligence to cabinetry.

The total installation of works will be visible from the street, arranged like objects in a Joseph Cornell box. Like the classical “Wunderkammer,” viewers can enter the interior space and weave around the contents of the “cabinet.” Learn more via the link in our bio.

#DavidReed: An exhibition of new paintings by David Reed is now open at Gagosian, Madison Avenue, New York.

This is 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 outsize works in the current show, some over a decade in the making, respond to the galleries at 980 Madison Avenue, testing and maximizing their spatial boundaries. 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. Find out more via the link in our bio.
