Gagosian, rue de Castiglione, Paris
For four nights the rue de Castiglione gallery will be open until 8pm for after-hours viewing of Steven Parrino, an exhibition featuring manipulated canvas paintings, works in sprayed enamel on vellum, and other works on paper. The show is anchored by three large paintings: Touch and Go (1989–95), Spin-Out Vortex (Black Hole) (2000), and The Self-Mutilation Bootleg 2 (The Open Grave) (1988/2003). Initially grouped with the Neo-Geo and Appropriation artists of 1980s downtown New York, Parrino ultimately pursued a more idiosyncratic and iconoclastic vision.

Alternate Meanings in Film and Video
You’re only as young as the last time you changed your mind.
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.

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.
