Gagosian Shop is pleased to present the launch of Cameo, a new project from LizWorks in collaboration with Catherine Opie and Cindy Sherman. Founded in 2014 by Liz Swig, LizWorks partners with leading contemporary artists to create one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces and accessories. Taking its name from a tradition of portraiture dating all the way back to antiquity, Cameo updates and reimagines this classical art form for the present day through the lens of photographers Opie and Sherman. A selection of these limited-edition cameos—each hand-carved in Torre del Greco, Italy, under the vision of third-generation cameo maker Gino di Luca—will be available. To attend the free event, RSVP to cameorsvp@gagosian.com.

Opening this Week

Andy Warhol bis Cindy Sherman
Amerikanische Kunst aus der Albertina

November 19, 2019–March 29, 2020
Schlossmuseum Linz, Austria
www.landesmuseum.at

Europe’s view of America is influenced by images of the entertainment industry: from film and television to advertising and newspapers. No other nation has placed so much reliance upon the power and impact of pictures and symbols as the US. With more than two hundred works of American art from 1960 to the present day, this large-scale exhibition, whose title translates to Andy Warhol to Cindy Sherman: American Art from the Albertina Museum, aims to illustrate how much our perceptions of truth and reality, facts and fake news, owe to America’s visual culture. Work by Gregory Crewdson, Roy Lichtenstein, Cindy Sherman, Andy Warhol, and Tom Wesselmann is included.
