About

Gagosian is pleased to announce Unique Books, curated by Matthew Zucker, a New York–based art book dealer, collector, and curator.

The exhibition brings together twenty-five rare artist’s books conceived as unique artworks, including Giuseppe Penone’s Albero—Il suo essere fino al 49mo anno d’età in un’ora fantastica (1972), one from a series of thirty scrolls in which he captured the surface of a tree through charcoal frottage; Anna Atkins’s self-published Photographs of British Algae: Cyanotype Impressions (1843), often cited as the first book of photography; and works by Tauba Auerbach, Marc Chagall, Rachel Feinstein, Harmony Korine, Dieter Roth, Ed Ruscha, Josh Smith, and Christopher Wool, among others.
