Michael Govan on Michael Heizer

Saturday, March 16, 2019, 2:30pm
Gagosian, 4 rue de Ponthieu, Paris

This event has been canceled. 

The CEO and Wallis Annenberg Director of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art will discuss the exhibition Michael Heizer, currently on view at Gagosian, Le Bourget, which presents works dating from 1968 to the present. Over fifty years, Michael Heizer has redefined the very idea of sculpture in his explorations of size, mass, and process. His earth-moving constructions, paintings, and drawings explore the dynamics of positive and negative space. To attend the free event, RSVP to rsvplebourget@gagosian.com.
