Art Fair

Art Basel Hong Kong 2021

May 21–23, 2021, booth 1d30
Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre
www.artbasel.com

Gagosian is pleased to participate in Art Basel Hong Kong with a presentation of modern and contemporary painting and sculpture by gallery artists. New paintings by Georg Baselitz, Alex Israel, Ed Ruscha, and Sarah Sze are featured alongside exceptional works in a range of mediums by Louise Bonnet, Theaster Gates, Henry Moore, Nam June Paik, and others, uncovering formal and conceptual innovations and associations that span genres and aesthetic approaches.

The dazzling radiant composition of Jennifer Guidi’s oil, acrylic, and sand painting The Divine Feminine (Painted White Sand SF #3B, Pink-Orange Gradient Fill) (2021) finds a visual echo in the intersecting vertical and diagonal strips of photographic imagery in Sarah Sze’s bold new collage painting Tell it Slant (2021), while the polychrome graphic burst of Mark Grotjahn’s color pencil drawing Untitled (Full Color Butterfly 54.11) (2020) has its literal opposite in Damien Hirst’s hypnotic canvas Martyr (2019), a blue-and-white mandala made of myriad concentric circles of dazzling butterfly wings preserved in household gloss paint.

Among the featured figural paintings are Tom Wesselmann’s distinctive oil-and-graphite composition Still Life with Odalisque and Goldfish (1998–99), which depicts a tabletop figurine within a colorful domestic arrangement, and Georg Baselitz’s large oil Noch ein Orangnesser (Another Orange Eater) (2020), where the artist uses a transfer technique to render an inverted male figure that evokes his Orangenesser (Orange Eater) series from 1980–82. A standout from the selection of sculptures is Takashi Murakami’s Oval Buddha Silver (2008–11), a gleaming metallic icon that combines material brilliance with pop-cultural style and an allusion to the quest for enlightenment.

Featured artists include Balthus, Georg Baselitz, Louise Bonnet, Helen Frankenthaler, Theaster Gates, Katharina Grosse, Mark Grotjahn, Jennifer Guidi, Damien Hirst, Tetsuya Ishida, Alex Israel, Henry Moore, Takashi Murakami, Yoshitomo Nara, Nam June Paik, Richard Prince, Ed Ruscha, Richard Serra, Rudolf Stingel, Spencer Sweeney, Sarah Sze, Tom Wesselmann, and Jonas Wood.

Featured works by Georg Baselitz, Helen Frankenthaler, Theaster Gates, Damien Hirst, Nam June Paik, Spencer Sweeney, and Sarah Sze are also accessible in the Art Basel Hong Kong Online Viewing Rooms at artbasel.com and on gagosian.com.

Artist Spotlight

Jim Shaw

November 16–22, 2022

Since the 1970s, Jim Shaw has responded to American cultural history through painting, drawing, and sculpture. He draws from sources as wide-ranging as comic books, pulp novels, rock albums, protest posters, and amateur paintings. Often unfolding in extended narrative cycles, Shaw’s works juxtapose images of friends and family with those depicting world events, pop-cultural phenomena, and alternative realities, blending the personal, the commonplace, and the visionary.

In 2021, Karin Kneffel embarked on a new series of oil paintings, different from anything she had made before. Derived from her photographic studies of early Northern Renaissance polychrome-painted wood sculptures, these portrait diptychs appear for the first time in the exhibition Face of a Woman, Head of a Child at Gagosian, Rome. Art historian Ulrich Wilmes provides a first look, noting how Kneffel links pictorial and empirical realities, past and present, in a topic of universal human significance.
