The Extreme Present
Opening reception: Tuesday, December 3, 5–8pm
December 4–8, 2019
Moore Building, Miami
Gagosian is pleased to announce The Extreme Present, the fifth in a series of annual exhibitions at the Moore Building in the Miami Design District during Art Basel Miami Beach, presented by Gagosian and Jeffrey Deitch. The Extreme Present will explore artists’ reactions to the conditions of our accelerating and increasingly complex world. The title is inspired by The Age of Earthquakes: A Guide to the Extreme Present, a book by Shumon Basar, Douglas Coupland, and Hans Ulrich Obrist, published in 2015. Their provocative thesis addresses the rapidly evolving digital era, half a century after Marshall McLuhan’s groundbreaking study on technology’s influence on culture, Understanding Media: The Extensions of Man, in which he coined the phrase “the medium is the message.” Works in this exhibition explore concepts of media, communication, togetherness, and isolation.

Thursday, October 10, 2019, 6pm
Gagosian, Hong Kong
Gagosian senior director Han-I Wang will lead a tour of Albert Oehlen’s first exhibition in Asia, a series of new paintings in watercolor on canvas. In these works, Oehlen emphasizes the importance of spontaneity within his artistic method. Oehlen’s use of watercolor in this series diverges from his recent works created with oil or lacquer on aluminum or the aluminum composite Dibond, and marks a stylistic return to his hazy, blended, almost impressionistic oil paintings dating from 2016 and earlier. To attend the free event, RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. Space is limited.

For this pop-up exhibition presented by Gagosian, Albert Oehlen will create a large-scale, site-specific wall drawing—his sprawling, erratic lines activating the space, which can be entered or viewed from the street. The exhibition will also be open Sunday, February 17, 11am–5pm, to coincide with the gallery’s presentation at Frieze Los Angeles.

December 6–10, 2017
Moore Building, Miami
On the occasion of Art Basel Miami Beach 2017, Gagosian and Jeffrey Deitch are pleased to present Abstract/Not Abstract, their third collaboration at the Moore Building in the Miami Design District. One of the great innovations of modernism, abstract painting continues to inspire and challenge artists. To make a fresh abstraction today following all the remarkable achievements of the School of Paris and the New York School is a daunting proposition. Yet through the use of innovative approaches, techniques, and technologies, this generation of artists is creating complex and astonishing new work that revitalizes the abstract tradition. Abstract/Not Abstract will include work by contemporary artists who redefine abstraction for our time.
