In Conversation

FT Weekend Festival 2022: US Edition
Rachel Feinstein and Jan Dalley

Saturday, May 7, 2022, 5pm
Kennedy Center, Washington, DC
usftweekendfestival.live.ft.com

As part of the inaugural US edition at the FT Weekend Festival, Rachel Feinstein will speak with Financial Times arts editor Jan Dalley about her artistic practice on the Literature & Arts Stage. By synthesizing visual and societal opposites such as romance and pornography, elegance and kitsch, and the marvelous and the banal, Feinstein explores issues of taste and desire in her paintings, sculptures, and installations.

Gagosian is partnering with the Financial Times to host the Literature & Arts Stage at the one-day event where leading experts discuss the arts, music, literature, food, business, and technology. Recent Gagosian Quarterly films will be screened between sessions on the stage throughout the day and Gagosian publications will also be presented. To attend the event in person or online, purchase tickets at usftweekendfestival.live.ft.com.

Rachel Feinstein: Secrets (Beverly Hills: Gagosian, 2019)

Online Reading

Rachel Feinstein
Secrets

Rachel Feinstein: Secrets is available for online reading from July 19 through August 17 as part of the From the Library series. Secrets documents Feinstein’s 2018 exhibition at Gagosian, Beverly Hills, which included a series of oversize, flamboyantly colored sculptures of women inspired by the Victoria’s Secret “Angels,” as well as mirror paintings, majolica sculptures, and a panoramic wallpaper that allude to both the European decorative arts and West Coast modernist luxury. A sculptural object in its own right, the book unites these distinct bodies of work—along with an essay by curator Pamela Golbin and a conversation between Feinstein and designer Tom Ford—within a single volume bound in a Z-fold cover, embodying the dichotomies present in the artist’s work.

Exhibition

Broadcast
Alternate Meanings in Film and Video

You’re only as young as the last time you changed your mind.
—Timothy Leary

Gagosian is pleased to present Broadcast: Alternate Meanings in Film and Video, an online exhibition of artists’ films and videos viewable exclusively on gagosian.com. The exhibition will be organized into a series of “chapters,” each lasting two weeks. The first chapter begins on Tuesday, May 19, 2020.

Broadcast: Alternate Meanings in Film and Video employs the innate immediacy of time-based art to spark reflection on the here and now, taking the words of famed psychologist and countercultural icon Timothy Leary as its starting point.
