Abstract Thoughts. international abstract art in the new exhibition space

comunicato stampa

Contemporary: Damien Hirst, The bilotti paintings

Gagosian Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of rarely seen masterpieces of international abstract art at the new space on Britannia Street. On loan from private collections in Europe and America, the show will offer an opportunity to view exceptional works from throughout the twentieth century.

The idea of abstract painting and sculpture is to create an object without reference to the world outside, or as a strictly vestigial image or form. The artists in this exhibition have each pursued the abstraction of a unique and individual character within the twentieth century tradition of Modernism. Particular attention has been paid by the artist to material and colour, to scale and handling. This exhibition aims to show these works in sympathetic relationships to each other, in spaces with ideal light and proportions, without imposing a theme or arbitrary construct to link these exceptional works.

Artists included in this exhibition:

Carl Andre
Walter de Maria
Damien Hirst
Donald Judd
Franz Kline
Roy Lichtenstein
Kazimir Malevich
Brice Marden
Blinky Palermo
Robert Rauschenberg
Ad Reinhardt
Gerhard Richter
Mark Rothko
Robert Ryman
Richard Serra
Frank Stella
Clyfford Still
Cy Twombly
Andy Warhol

A fully illustrated catalogue will accompany the exhibition.
