Inside this issue, Nathaniel Mary Quinn speaks with Anderson Cooper about the visionary nature of his art. We get a glimpse of Sterling Ruby’s newest sculptures and visit Tatiana Trouvé’s Between sky and earth in upstate New York. We hear from Albert Oehlen about his newest body of work, paintings made during a recent stay in Los Angeles. We’re delighted to have Carlos Valladares writing on the films and videos of Richard Serra and to have Richard Hell discussing Christopher Wool’s early encounters with German painters including Dieter Roth, Sigmar Polke, Martin Kippenberger, and Albert Oehlen. We take a moment to remember the incredible legacy of Robert Therrien (1947–2019) with Aimee Gabbard and hear from Jack Cowart, executive director of the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation, about the Foundation’s evolution. This edition also includes part three of Mark Z. Danielewski’s story “Love Is Not a Flame”; homages to Leonardo da Vinci, Dora Maar, and Betty Parsons; and features on the Fletcher family, Piero GoliaSetsuko, and Cy Twombly.

For all of this and so much more, order your copy or subscribe at the Gagosian Shop, or read the issue online.

Cy Twombly: Imperfect Paradise

Eleonora Di Erasmo, cocurator of Un/veiled: Cy Twombly, Music, Inspirations, a program of concerts, video screenings, and works by Cy Twombly at the Fondazione Nicola Del Roscio, Rome, reflects on the resonances and networks of inspiration between the artist and music. The program was the result of an extensive three-year study, done at the behest of Nicola Del Roscio in the Rome and Gaeta offices of the Cy Twombly Foundation, intended to collect, document, and preserve compositions by musicians around the world who have been inspired by Twombly’s work, or to establish an artistic dialogue with them.

Cy Twombly: Making Past Present

In 2020, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, announced their plan for a survey of Cy Twombly’s artwork alongside selections from their permanent ancient Greek and Roman collection. The survey was postponed due to the lockdowns necessitated by the coronavirus pandemic, but was revived in 2022 with a presentation at the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles from August 2 through October 30. In 2023, the exhibition will arrive at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. The curator for the exhibition, Christine Kondoleon, and Kate Nesin, author of Cy Twombly’s Things (2014) and advisor for the show, speak with Gagosian director Mark Francis about the origin of the exhibition and the aesthetic and poetic resonances that give the show its title: Making Past Present.

The video brings together the artist; Isabelle Tamisier-Vétois, chief curator, and Élisabeth Caude, director, Musée national des châteaux de Malmaison et Bois-Préau; and Benoît Astier de Villatte, cofounder of the atelier Astier de Villatte, Paris.
