Gagosian is presenting new works by Sterling Ruby at Frieze New York 2024, including four paintings from the TURBINE series (2021–) and a selection of collages from the DRFTRS series (2012–). Incorporating the same materials and namesake mechanism as Ruby’s WIDW paintings (2016–), but also suggesting hurricanes and explosions, fire and conflict, the TURBINE paintings evoke speed and self-destruction, alluding to the Futurists and Russian Constructivism. Ruby again employs formal relationships in response to contemporary problems, pairing them with diverse cultural and historical references. In the DRFTRS series of works on paper, Ruby layers and formally arranges microcosmic and macrocosmic imagery, collaging photographs of spores and plants, particles and stars onto surfaces washed with paint.

Rose

Gagosian, rue de Ponthieu, Paris

Urs Fischer’s painting Rose (2024) is on view in the vitrine at Gagosian, rue de Ponthieu, Paris, as part of the artist’s exhibition Beauty at the rue de Castiglione gallery.

In 2010, Fischer began the Problem Paintings series, layering vivid screen-printed images of familiar objects and organic forms—from fixtures and fittings to fruits and vegetables—over precisely rendered enlargements of vintage Hollywood headshots. Rose belongs to this series and shows a glamorous screen actor wearing red lipstick, her face partially obscured by a luscious pink rose with a bright green stem and leaves. The juxtaposition enacts a playful conflict between clarity and secrecy, aesthetic experimentation and symbolic meaning. Evoking the cryptological messaging of Victorian floriography, Rose confronts the viewer with a mischievous, perhaps unsolvable visual conundrum.

Nam June Paik and Jud Yalkut’s video Waiting for Commercials, 1966–72 (1992) features in ART SG FILM 2024, a program within the fair dedicated to showcasing new and experimental filmmaking practices, as well as art historically resonant works, particularly by artists and practitioners from around the Southeast Asia and Asia Pacific regions. Curated by Sam I-shan and copresented with the ArtScience Museum, this year’s program, Embodied Presences, gathers works addressing the body’s expressive potential. Organized into four hour-long daily screenings—Movement in Space (11am), Voice and Being (12:30pm), The Worldly and Otherworldly (2pm), and Future Shock: The End of Eternity (3:30pm)—it plays at ArtScience Museum’s cinema. Included in The Worldly and Otherworldly, Waiting for Commercials, 1966–72, an uproarious compilation of Japanese TV ads, is an early example of Paik’s use of appropriated broadcast imagery and was originally produced to accompany a performance work of the same title featuring Charlotte Moorman. The event is free to attend on a first-come, first-served basis.

Candyfloss

October 12–November 28, 2023
Gagosian, rue de Ponthieu, Paris

Urs Fischer’s painting Candyfloss (2023) is on view in the street-facing vitrine at Gagosian, rue de Ponthieu, Paris, presented along with the artist’s monumental sculpture Wave (2018) at Place Vendôme in Paris as part of Paris+ par Art Basel.

Candyfloss is one of the latest works in Fischer’s series of Problem Paintings, which he began in 2010. In this series, the artist formulates incongruous pairings of photographic portraits with vibrantly colored screenprinted images of inanimate objects. In Candyfloss, Fischer overlays an enlarged picture of a cerise-pink daisy on a digitally altered headshot of a Hollywood actress, obscuring her identity through the blossom’s placement. The visual “problem” resulting from this friction between illegibility and possibility—and from the clash of representational systems suggested by the flower’s mysteriously improbable shadow—is at once surprising and darkly humorous.

Regent’s Park, London
www.frieze.com

Gagosian is pleased to present a special solo presentation of new paintings by Damien Hirst in commemoration of the twentieth anniversary of Frieze London. These previously unseen works exemplify the artist’s endless capacity for invention.

In The Secret Gardens Paintings (2023), Hirst depicts thriving gardens in which different species of vibrantly colored flowers emerge from their verdant surroundings in a style that balances the designed and the natural, the harmonious and the chaotic. Rendering blooms, shrubs, and ponds in quick but convincing detail, he also incorporates consciously indistinct passages before finally adding an abstract layer to each canvas by hurling thick paint at its surface from a loaded brush.

Wave

October 14–November 30, 2023
Place Vendôme, Paris

Gagosian is pleased to present Urs Fischer’s public sculpture Wave (2018). The work will be installed at Place Vendôme in Paris from October 14 as part of Paris+ par Art Basel.

Wave is the sixth sculpture in Fischer’s series Big Clays. Despite their imposing scale, these works always begin with a small piece or pieces of clay shaped in the artist’s hand. Fischer describes this process as “a sensual and repetitive gesture, like a bodily motion,” which he ends prior to conscious intervention. After making hundreds of such forms, he selects only one to be digitally scanned and carved at an enlarged scale. Unlike a cast form or a digital replica, the resulting work preserves the nuanced tactility of the original maquette, magnifying its details—down to the artist’s fingerprints—into a monument.

Franz West: Papier

October 12–15, 2023, booth E01
Regent’s Park, London
www.frieze.com

Gagosian is pleased to participate in the 2023 edition of Frieze Masters with a presentation of paper-based works by Franz West that spans his career from the early 1970s through the 2010s, conceived in association with the Estate of Franz West and through the initiative of the Franz West Privatstiftung. Chosen in collaboration with artist Oscar Murillo, the selection in London highlights West’s irreverence and ingenuity.

Collaging and overpainting imagery from print media, West disrupted the pictorial continuity of his sources and confounded expectations between public display and subjective experience. Blending abstraction and figuration, West’s works on paper exhibit an absurdist wit, with some exploring a mischievous vulgarity through an emphasis on bodily functions and erotic themes.

Lee joins Gagosian following nearly fifteen years based in Seoul working on behalf of both Korean and Western galleries. Her appointment builds on the gallery’s establishment of a business entity in Korea last year, and provides for expanded activities in the region.

Thomas Houseago’s bronze sculpture Gold Walking Man (2021) features in Art Basel Parcours 2023, which engages the public and fairgoers by placing site-specific sculptures, interventions, and performances in the city’s historic center. Houseago’s sculpture confronts viewers with a consciously rough-hewn vision of the human body in all its sensual and psychological complexity, mining a transitional zone that Houseago has described as “between being alive and dead, between being matter and something other than matter.”

Art Basel Unlimited 2023 features ten exhibition prints from Richard Avedon’s photographic series In the American West (1979–84). To produce In the American West, Avedon spent five years traveling through twenty-one western states, photographing more than a thousand people. Using natural light and a white backdrop, he emphasized his sitters’ poses and expressions, picturing ordinary people with striking immediacy. These ten oversize prints were selected by the artist to hang in the windows of the Amon Carter Museum in Fort Worth, Texas, for the inaugural exhibition of the series in 1985.

Launched in 2000, Unlimited is an exhibition platform for exciting large-scale projects that transcend the limits of the standard booth.

Gagosian is pleased to announce its participation in TEFAF New York 2023, with a special presentation of works by Richard Prince, Jeff Koons, and Peter Halley. Made between 1989 and 1994, they employ strategies of appropriation, figuration, and abstraction, responding with wry humor to the eclectic postmodernism and moral panics of a culturally volatile era. Three decades later, these works remain provocative and represent a pivotal development in the career of each artist.
