Opening reception: Monday, November 28, 5–8pm
November 29–December 4, 2022
Buick Building, Miami
Gagosian is pleased to announce 100 Years, the gallery’s seventh annual group exhibition in collaboration with Jeffrey Deitch. On view during Miami Art Week at the historic Buick Building in the city’s Design District, and online at gagosian-deitch.com, 100 Years explores the interplay of past, present, and future through contemporary works in a range of mediums. It focuses on artists who recognize the critical nature of a period of sweeping social and cultural change while alluding to the ephemerality of human life and memory. And while in dialogue with the art of the past century, it also anticipates possible future advances. Some works consider the absurdities and crises of past, present, and future through cyclical, endless, or unresolved situations; others reflect on the passage of time as it is manifested in or by human or animal life, or approach it from the perspective of global cultural, political, ideological, and spiritual histories and customs.

ICRA Annual Conference 2022
Legacy: The Artist’s View
Thursday, December 1, 2022, 9:30am
Cromwell Place, London
The International Catalogue Raisonné Association conference will give artists, their families, and catalogue raisonné authors space to articulate their thoughts on the theme of legacy. Engaging with the question of posterity, the conference asks how a family’s closeness to the artist can be both a blessing and a challenge, and thinks about ways in which later generations as well as nonfamily members can address issues surrounding an artist’s continued relevance. Edmund de Waal will be the keynote speaker and Michael Craig-Martin and Rachel Whiteread will contribute to the conference as well. The in-person and online event will include a question-and-answer session.

Gagosian, Beverly Hills
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.
