In Conversation

FT Weekend Festival 2022
Michael Craig-Martin and Jan Dalley

Saturday, September 3, 2022, 11–11:45am
Kenwood House, London
ftweekend.live.ft.com

As part of this year’s FT Weekend Festival in London, Michael Craig-Martin will be in conversation with Financial Times arts editor Jan Dalley on the Arts Stage to discuss his long career in art, teaching, and writing, as well as his latest projects. A principal figure of British conceptual art, Craig-Martin probes the relationship between objects and images, harnessing the human capacity to imagine absent forms through symbols and pictures.

Gagosian is partnering with the Financial Times to host the Arts Stage at the one-day event where leading experts discuss the arts, music, literature, food, business, and technology. Recent Gagosian Quarterly films will be screened between sessions on the stage throughout the day and Gagosian publications will also be presented.

As part of Anderson Ranch Arts Center’s Summer Series program, Jeff Wall will speak about his practice, which synthesizes the essentials of photography with elements from other art forms—including painting, cinema, and literature—in a complex mode that he calls “cinematography.” Summer Series: Featured Artists and Conversations explores the work of artists and curators through lectures, conversations, panel discussions, and question-and-answer sessions, with the aim of fostering a broader understanding of contemporary art and art making.

Program

On Land/On Vanishing Land
A Day of Music in “Haunted Realism”

Tuesday, July 19, 2022, 10:30am–6:15pm
Gagosian, Grosvenor Hill, London

Join Gagosian for a daylong music program played on Brian Eno’s Turntable (2021), an acrylic record player fitted with LED lights that cycle through different color combinations, inside the exhibition Haunted Realism at Gagosian, Grosvenor Hill, London. Taking the show as a departure point, the lineup will feature twelve recordings, including Eno’s Ambient 4: On Land (1982) and On Vanishing Land (2013), an audio essay assembled by the late Mark Fisher and writer Justin Barton. The program, which also includes musical selections by artists in the exhibition, evokes the lost futures of Marxist ideology by exploring the uncanny “non-places” of late capitalism, a strategy that Fisher also applied in his critical writing. The event is free and open to the public.

Shop Takeover

Marc Newson

July 5–September 10, 2022
Gagosian Shop, London

Marc Newson is taking over the Gagosian Shop in London’s historic Burlington Arcade. Newson will showcase large-scale cloisonné furniture alongside pieces in various forms of glass that push the boundaries of the medium. Included are his Magnolia chair (2019) and cloisonné lounge, which adapt the ancient craft of Chinese enamel, aluminum surfboards, a cast glass chair, and a table from the Murrina series. The presentation coincides with the launch of a recently published catalogue that documents Newson’s intensive manufacturing process.

Also available are personalized iPhone cases from the artist’s collaboration with cult brand Chaos. The Marc Newson × Chaos collection is inspired by Newson’s enameling techniques and features motifs such as his signature amoebic “orgone” pattern.

For the first month, Gagosian Shop will present dresses by Alaïa—the fashion house founded by designer Azzedine Alaïa (1935–2017)—inspired by Picasso’s Tanagra ceramics. Alaïa was a longtime friend and collaborator of Newson’s.

New Representation

Harold Ancart

Gagosian is pleased to announce the representation of Harold Ancart. The artist will have a solo exhibition with the gallery in New York in 2023.

Focusing on recognizable subjects, Ancart isolates moments of poetry in his everyday surroundings. By working serially, he moves beyond straightforward representation to emphasize the process of painting. Straddling abstraction and representation, he experiments with color and composition, allowing the operation of chance to help determine a work’s final form.

Born in Brussels and based in New York, Ancart had a solo exhibition at the Menil Collection, Houston, in 2016, and is featured in the 2022 Whitney Biennial. His work is represented in the collections of significant institutions worldwide, including the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Musee d’Art Moderne de Paris; and Fondation Beyeler, Riehen/Basel, Switzerland.

New Representation

Jadé Fadojutimi

Gagosian is pleased to announce the representation of Jadé Fadojutimi. To inaugurate the relationship, Fadojutimi will take over the gallery’s booth at Frieze London in October 2022 with an installation of new works.

In her paintings, which are often monumental in scale, Fadojutimi orchestrates color, space, line, and movement in the service of fluid emotion and the quest for self-knowledge. She interprets everyday experience in ways that are at once compelling and confrontational, reflecting a drive to understand more completely otherwise indescribable but perpetually intertwined ideas of identity and beauty.

Fadojutimi draws inspiration from specific locations, cultures, objects, and sounds, especially Japanese anime, clothing, and soundtracks. Writing, too, is key to her process—sometimes she uses it to help articulate the subtleties of her painting; at other times she positions it in parallel to the visual by adopting a more poetic approach.

New Representation

Stanley Whitney

Gagosian is pleased to announce the representation of Stanley Whitney. Renowned for the depth of his exploration into the expressive potentials of painted color and form, Whitney has been committed to abstraction since the mid-1970s. While living in Rome in the 1990s, he consolidated a process-based painterly approach which he has now sustained and developed over the course of three decades.

Richard Wright’s no title (2018) has been installed on the ceiling of the Tottenham Court Road station’s eastern ticket hall as part of the Transport for London (TfL) Elizabeth Line, which opened for service on May 25, 2022. To make this work, Wright and his team painstakingly applied gold leaf to the raw concrete ceiling in an intricate geometric pattern whose reflectivity fluctuates depending on the ambient light. At seven stations on the Elizabeth Line, the Crossrail Art Programme commissioned public artworks that have been designed to interact both physically and conceptually with their sites.

All are connected through an intricate network of paths, tunnels, and underground crypts. Beginning in May 2022, La Ribaute is open to the public for guided tours, enabling visitors to encounter an extensive representation of Kiefer’s work in various mediums, as well as site-specific installations by Laurie Anderson, Giovanni Anselmo, VALIE EXPORT, and Wolfgang Laib.

This exhibition, whose title translates to At the Moment, showcases Karin Kneffel’s work, in which lush and eloquent pictures are perfectly constructed impossibilities—collapsing heterogeneous places and incidents in a flawlessly executed, seductively realist manner. Although many of Kneffel’s sources actually exist, the resulting images are cunningly wrought scenes inspired by the many lives of art, and which highlighting painting’s unique ability to simultaneously uphold and destroy illusions.

In their respective mediums, ranging from photography and film to installation, they respond to images that originated in another time or were made for a different purpose. Work by Taryn Simon is included.
