Douglas Gordon’s 2016 film I had nowhere to go: Portrait of a displaced person will be presented at Art Basel Unlimited (stand U28). The film is a portrait of Jonas Mekas, the legendary artist, filmmaker, poet, curator, and godfather of American avant-garde cinema. At ninety-five years old, Mekas is among the few remaining survivors of Nazi persecution. The film has been hailed by critics and viewers alike for its revelatory treatment of history and innovative approach to the biographical genre.
Gordon’s Feature Film (1999) will be screened at 9pm on Thursday, June 14, as part of the Art Basel Short Film Program. The film focuses intimately on the hands and facial gestures of conductor James Conlon while he conducts the orchestra of the Opéra National de Paris in performing the haunting soundtrack of Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo (1958). To reserve tickets, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Visit our Artsy page to preview Gordon’s work at Unlimited, and for an online-only presentation of his photographs and prints.

Frieze New York
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.

The Gagosian booth will be dedicated to Nam June Paik. The artist’s monumental assemblage Lion (2005), the centerpiece of the booth, is comprised of a hand-painted guardian lion sculpture framed within a wooden arch and twenty-eight television screens of various sizes. The televisions display fast-paced montages of flowers, animals, and fish, as well as real-time footage of lions and of Merce Cunningham dancing. Lion is emblematic of Paik’s “late style,” in which he often reflected upon artists
and performers who influenced his oeuvre. Individual television sculptures and mixed-media works by the artist will also be on view. If you wish to receive a PDF with detailed information on the works, please contact us at email@example.com. Tickets are available at www.thearmoryshow.com.

Paris Photo 2017

Grand Palais, Paris
Patti Smith, an internationally acclaimed musician, writer, and visual artist, has chosen a selection of her own photographs to be shown alongside works by other artists including Richard Avedon, Balthus, Gregory Crewdson, Peter Lindbergh, Vera Lutter, Sally Mann, Taryn Simon, Deborah Turbeville, Cy Twombly, and Andy Warhol. Smith began taking photographs in 1978, eventually developing an emotionally unfiltered archive of solitary moments, to which she is continually adding. Her lifelong fascination with eulogy and remembrance is reflected in her selection of works by other artists. “Curated by Patti Smith” provides a glimpse of Smith and her fellow travelers, and is a coming-together of people, places, and relics.

October 5–8, 2017, booth C2
Regent’s Park, London
Gagosian will present Remembering Bilderstreit: Georg Baselitz and Roy Lichtenstein, bringing together works by these two great iconoclastic artists. With one exception, all the works date from the 1980s, a period of great productivity and radical experimentation for both Baselitz and Lichtenstein. In 1989 both artists took part in Bilderstreit (“Picture Fight” or “Conflict of Images”), a huge exhibition of postwar Western art held in Cologne. One of its guiding principles was the idea of a “coincidence of opposites”: the confrontation of works of art of contrasting appearance but with similar aims. At one point in the exhibition paintings by Baselitz and Lichtenstein were shown opposite each other in the same space. Among these was Lichtenstein’s Paintings: Oriental Still Life (1984), which will be on display in the booth. Tickets available at www.frieze.com.

Chris Burden’s monumental performance sculpture, Ode to Santos-Dumont, will be presented at Art Basel Unlimited. The flying machine was inspired by Brazilian-born pioneer aviator Alberto Santos-Dumont, widely considered the father of aviation in France, and modeled after Santos-Dumont’s 1901 dirigible that flew around the Eiffel Tower. Completed after a decade of research and work by Burden, Ode to Santos-Dumont offers a palpable and emotional expression of the density of air, gravity, and energy required to move about in our earthly environment.
