Frieze New York 2020
May 4–10, 2020
On the occasion of the online edition of Frieze New York, Gagosian is pleased to offer an important painting by Cecily Brown in its Online Viewing Room. Made in 2001, the work is from a crucial moment in Brown’s development of her exuberant yet elusive figuration—the breakthrough period of her ascent that is best represented in global museums and most desired by collectors. This special offering is a rare chance to acquire one of the most celebrated and exhibited paintings from this formative period.
The Online Viewing Room will open at 12:00am on Monday, May 4, in Hong Kong, and close at 11:59pm on Sunday, May 10, in Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Drawing Center, New York
The benefit exhibition 100 Drawings from Now features drawings made by an international group of artists since early 2020, providing a snapshot of artistic production during the period of profound global unrest that has resulted from the ongoing health and economic crises, as well as the surge of activism in response to systemic racism, social injustice, and police brutality in the United States. Together, the donated works spotlight the urgency, intimacy, and universality of drawing during moments of upheaval and isolation. Proceeds from the sales will support the Drawing Center and the artists. Work by Cecily Brown, Giuseppe Penone, and Nathaniel Mary Quinn is included.
