Frieze New York 2018
May 3–6, 2018, booth D14
Randall’s Island Park, New York
Gagosian is pleased to participate in Frieze New York 2018 with a solo presentation of works by Robert Therrien. In his investigations of form, perception, and subjectivity, Therrien isolates recognizable elements and objects from everyday life, imbuing the ordinary with an otherworldly air. His work demonstrates the transformative power of scale and viewpoint, from giant tables and chairs and towering stacks of oversize plates, to drawings of familiar shapes and forms, which he distills and refines to create a lexicon of symbols, both ambiguous and charged with memory. To receive a PDF with detailed information on the works, please contact the gallery at firstname.lastname@example.org.To preview our booth go to www.artsy.net.

Gagosian, San Francisco
Join Gagosian for a private tour and in-depth look at Robert Therrien’s first solo exhibition in San Francisco in twenty years. In this exhibition of new paintings and sculptures, the artist pares down familiar forms such as smoke signals, stacked plates, and a witch hat to the point that they become symbols and silhouettes, underscoring the simple beauty and infinite meaning inherent in common objects. The tour, led by Graham Dalik, will consider Therrien’s continual reinvention of these motifs through shifts in medium, perspective, and scale. To attend the free event, RSVP to email@example.com.
