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.

The Extreme Present

Exhibition

The Extreme Present

Opening reception: Tuesday, December 3, 5–8pm
December 4–8, 2019
Moore Building, Miami

Gagosian is pleased to announce The Extreme Present, the fifth in a series of annual exhibitions at the Moore Building in the Miami Design District during Art Basel Miami Beach, presented by Gagosian and Jeffrey Deitch. The Extreme Present will explore artists’ reactions to the conditions of our accelerating and increasingly complex world. The title is inspired by The Age of Earthquakes: A Guide to the Extreme Present, a book by Shumon Basar, Douglas Coupland, and Hans Ulrich Obrist, published in 2015. Their provocative thesis addresses the rapidly evolving digital era, half a century after Marshall McLuhan’s groundbreaking study on technology’s influence on culture, Understanding Media: The Extensions of Man, in which he coined the phrase “the medium is the message.” Works in this exhibition explore concepts of media, communication, togetherness, and isolation.
