September 17, 2019 – February 1, 2020

Gagosian is pleased to present recent sculptures and drawings by Richard Serra. At 980 Madison Avenue, a series of new diptych and triptych drawings will be on view. Four new works from Serra’s Rounds series will fill the entire West 24th Street gallery. Each forged-steel sculpture is composed of multiple 50-ton elements of differing diameters and heights. Bisecting the West 21st Street gallery space will be Reverse Curve (2005/19), a sculpture measuring 99 feet long and 13 feet high. Originally conceived in 2005 for a public project in Reggio Emilia, Italy, Reverse Curve is finally being realized for the first time.

This is the first time that all of the artist’s film and video work will be shown together. The screening on October 19 will be followed by a panel discussion between curators Søren Grammel, Chrissie Iles, and Jeffrey Weiss, moderated by art historian Benjamin Buchloh. Additional screenings of the full program will take place on October 20 and 23.

BANKSY: A VISUAL PROTEST

Art | October 29, 2020

Over 90 works, in a rigorous exposition itinerary, illustrate Banksy's world. The 16th-century architecture of the Chiostro del Bramante in Rome becomes a setting for the “unknown” artist who has charmed the world through works steeped in irony, denunciation, politics, intelligence, and protest. From ''Love is in the Air'' to ''Girl with Balloon''; from ''Queen Vic'' to ''Napalm'', from ''Toxic Mary'' to ''HMV'', from the press runs for the book ''Wall & Piece'' to the projects for vinyl and CD covers. ''I was pretty bad with the spray can, so I started cutting out the stencils''. Banksy's own words provide some indications as to the technique he most frequently uses. On display, thanks to stencilling: paper or canvas prints, along with a selection of unique works executed using different techniques: oil or acrylic on canvas, spray on canvas, stencils on metal or concrete, painted polymeric sculptures or varnished bronze ones.
