To bring on the festive season, Gagosian will present a pop-up exhibition of catalogues, posters, prints, and limited editions by gallery artists including John Currin, Ellen Gallagher, Douglas Gordon, Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, Yayoi Kusama, Roy Lichtenstein, Takashi Murakami, Richard Prince, Anselm Reyle, Ed Ruscha, Andy Warhol, and Franz West. This exhibition presents a selection of the works available for sale at the permanent Gagosian Shop in New York, which opened in 2009.
In addition to the scholarly monographs, innovative catalogues, and limited editions of Gagosian’s unparalleled publishing program, Gagosian Pop-Up! will feature exclusive limited-edition furniture and design objects—from Jeff Koons’s Puppy vase and Franz West’s Uncle Chairs to striking posters from gallery exhibitions including Crash and Pop Art Is… Limited-edition artist’s books include Ed Ruscha’s illustrated version of Jack Kerouac’s historic novel On the Road, a special edition of Gregory Crewdson’s most recent photographic reverie Sanctuary, and Richard Prince’s Bettie Kline, a surprising visual dialogue between the model Bettie Page and the painter Franz Kline. In addition, etchings and lithographs by John Currin, Dexter Dalwood, Jenny Saville, and others will be available.
A special feature of Gagosian Pop-Up! in London will be the presence of Other Criteria—the London-based publisher of artist editions, books, multiples, and artist-designed merchandise, launched in 2005 by Damien Hirst, Hugh Allan, and Frank Dunphy. Available works by Hirst include editioned prints of the Spot, Pill, and Butterfly paintings, and a series of deck chairs designed by Hirst in an assortment of punchy colors featuring the “stained-glass” butterfly motif from the Superstition series.
On Saturday, December 11, 2010, from 2 to 4pm, Turner Prize nominee Dexter Dalwood will be signing copies of his new monograph published by JRP Ringier.
