First available for purchase through pop-up presentations, UF will debut at 100 Years, a group exhibition that features work by Fischer, presented by Gagosian and Jeffrey Deitch at the Buick Building. Following Miami Art Week, the line will be available at Jeffrey Deitch on Grand Street in New York beginning December 8, 2022.

Join Gagosian for a live performance inside the exhibition Cy Twombly at Gagosian, Beverly Hills, by musician, producer, and film and television composer Isabella Summers, a founding member of Florence and the Machine. Titled To Neptune, Ruler of the Seas Profound, the piece is inspired by Twombly’s life and work. The music is interwoven with quotations from poems and literary texts by authors who have served as muses or subjects for Twombly, including Homer, Stéphane Mallarmé, and William Butler Yeats. The performance expands on a composition Summers performed in Rome in May 2022 at the Fondazione Nicola Del Roscio.
