Gagosian will reopen all three of its London spaces, Grosvenor Hill, Britannia Street and Davies Street to the public with brand new exhibitions on Monday 15 June 2020.
The exhibitions include a group show of large-scale sculptures by John Chamberlain, Urs Fischer, and Charles Ray; the first UK solo-exhibition of Italian sculptor Piero Golia; and a special presentation of furniture from the iconic Casa Malaparte in Capri.
Larry Gagosian said:
“Our London galleries will reopen with three new exhibitions on June 15. London has always had a special energy and appreciation for the arts, and I look forward to seeing that vitality return.”
At Grosvenor Hill, Crushed, Cast, Constructed: Sculpture by John Chamberlain, Urs Fischer, and Charles Ray (June 15 – July 31, 2020) will explore three very divergent approaches to creating sculpture, bringing together works in metal by John Chamberlain, Urs Fischer, and Charles Ray. Each artist’s work will be presented in separate rooms, allowing for a focused exploration of individual approach and identity—and affirming each artist’s status as a pioneer of sculptural technique and affect.
Piero Golia: Still Life, the artist’s first UK solo-exhibition, will be presented at the Britannia Street gallery (June 15 – July 31, 2020). For this exhibition, Golia has engineered a surreal “sculptural happening” by choreographing a set of objects and incidents to create a singular experience that seems to unfold outside of time. The exhibition regenerates itself from moment to moment, suggesting that repetition and renewal might give rise to heightened sculptural presence.
At Davies Street, Casa Malaparte: Furniture (June 15 – September 19, 2020) will present for the first time furniture from the legendary Casa Malaparte in Capri, Italy. Designed by renowned author Curzio Malaparte, an Italian writer, filmmaker, journalist, designer and diplomat best known for two major books: Kaputt and The Skin, the house and its contents have achieved mythic cultural status. For this special exhibition, a limited edition of important original pieces of furniture designed by Malaparte, that grace the house to this day, has been produced under the direction of Malaparte’s youngest descendant, Tommaso Rositani Suckert, and manufactured by expert craftsmen in Italy.
Opening times: 11am to 5pm, Monday to Friday – by appointment.
