Artist Spotlight

Alexandria Smith

January 25–31, 2023

Alexandria Smith’s art addresses issues of identity as informed by autobiography, fiction, myth, collective memory, and history. She depicts metaphysical beings in primordial settings who embody states of growth and transformation. Her interest in hybridity and experimentation encompasses drawings with collage elements, paintings with sculptural assemblage, and immersive installations. Smith builds up dimensional components in her painted works, recently further articulating their surfaces through the incorporation of 3D-printed parts.

Edmund de Waal and Theaster Gates

January 25–29, 2023, booth C30
Palexpo, Geneva

Gagosian is pleased to announce the gallery’s participation in artgenève 2023 with a dual presentation of porcelain vessels by Edmund de Waal and wood-fired ceramics by Theaster Gates. Placing the works of these two artists in dialogue, the presentation juxtaposes two very different but nonetheless complementary approaches to the established traditions and new possibilities represented by an ancient medium and practice.
