Art Fair

FOG Design+Art 2020

January 16–19, 2020, booth 204
Fort Mason Festival Pavilion, San Francisco
fogfair.com

Gagosian is pleased to participate in FOG Design+Art 2020 with a presentation of works by Michael Heizer and Mary Weatherford. Together, Heizer and Weatherford conjure a dialogue about our complex interaction with the environment at large. In two works from Heizer’s ongoing Negative Wall Sculptures, unrefined rocks are contained by a smooth manmade alloy, yet they remain imposing—even seemingly impossible—in the apparent negation of their enormous weight. Weatherford’s works on paper feature abstracted landscapes that do not set urban and rural environments against one another, but immerse us instead in the artist’s personal impressions of a world outside of time.

To receive a PDF with detailed information on the works, please contact the gallery at inquire@gagosian.com. To attend the fair, purchase tickets at fogfair.com.
