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.

Tour

Marc Newson

Saturday, June 29, 2019, 4pm
Gagosian, Hong Kong

Gagosian Senior Director Han-I Wang will lead a tour of Marc Newson’s first exhibition of limited-edition furniture in China. This presentation explores Newson’s use of increasingly rare decorative processes at an unconventionally large, even unprecedented, scale, as well as his curiosity with the streamlined, simple beauty of Asian art and design. From cloisonné to cast glass chairs to Aikuchi swords, Wang will take a closer look at how the artist blurs the boundaries between sculpture, furniture, and the decorative arts. To attend the free event, RSVP to hktours@gagosian.com. Space is limited.
