Paris Photo 2017

November 9–12, 2017, booth B16
Grand Palais, Paris

Patti Smith, an internationally acclaimed musician, writer, and visual artist, has chosen a selection of her own photographs to be shown alongside works by other artists including Richard Avedon, Balthus, Gregory Crewdson, Peter Lindbergh, Vera Lutter, Sally Mann, Taryn Simon, Deborah Turbeville, Cy Twombly, and Andy Warhol. Smith began taking photographs in 1978, eventually developing an emotionally unfiltered archive of solitary moments, to which she is continually adding. Her lifelong fascination with eulogy and remembrance is reflected in her selection of works by other artists. “Curated by Patti Smith” provides a glimpse of Smith and her fellow travelers, and is a coming-together of people, places, and relics.

NY Art Book Fair 2019
Taryn Simon

September 20–22, 2019, project room 4
MoMA PS1, New York

Gagosian is participating in the NY Art Book Fair with a special project space conceived by Taryn Simon, to celebrate the release of recordings on vinyl from Simon’s landmark performance work, An Occupation of Loss, co-commissioned by Artangel and Park Avenue Armory.

In the piece, professional mourners simultaneously broadcast their lamentations, many of which trace their origins to pre-Islamic and pre-Christian times, enacting rituals of grief. The new double album, released by the Vinyl Factory, includes both live recordings made during the 2018 London performance and studio recordings of each lament performed by the professional mourners who collaborated on the London event. 

At NYABF, visitors will be able to hear the album at listening stations, and to read an accompanying book that presents the laments with their English translations, Simon’s portraits of the performers, and documentation of the performers’ visa application process.
