Armory Week ’13: Gagosian – Andy Warhol: Self Portrait / Camouflage

Gagosian pulled out all the stops at this years’ Armory show. And by “all the stops” we mean a small handful of modest-sized works by Andy Warhol (at a combined value of around 20 million dollars) and one gigantic 33′ x 7′ camouflage piece produced by Warhol in the latter part of 1986. There has been quite a buzz about this superbooth, but it’s only fair to put this wallpaperfest into the proper perspective. It was definitely a power-house art cluster with auction busting works […]
Hirst Spot Challenge Hypothalamus Acetone Powder AM  06

Damien Hirst x Gagosian: Spot Challenge – “Hypothalamus Acetone Powder” Print

It’s finally here. After almost a year since AM took on Damien Hirst’s Spot Challenge and ran the gauntlet of 11 galleries around the globe, the reward has arrived for the 128 participants who completed the trip around the world. Entitled Hypothalamus Acetone Powder (can anyone explain what this substance is?), this massive silk-screened print measures 59 x 53 inches and is an amazing example of the British artist’s “Spot” artwork. Consisting of 420 uniquely colored one inch dots, this piece required a mind-boggling four hundred and twenty […]

World Tour – Completing the Gagosian Gallery x Damien Hirst Spot Challenge

227 hours – That’s how long it took for AM to travel the globe and complete the Spot Challenge presented by Damien Hirst x Gagosian Gallery. As we broke the news about this unique promotion, we thought, “why don’t we take Damien up on his challenge instead of just reporting on it?” Some of us have long been fans of Mr. Hirst’s spot paintings, so pair that with the opportunity to visit eight awesome cities (Geneva, Paris, London, Rome, Athens, New York, Los Angeles and Hong Kong) and […]

Openings: Damien Hirst – “The Complete Spot Paintings 1986–2011″ @ Gagosian Gallery, Beverly Hills

Being located the furthest west of any of the galleries in Larry Gagosian’s dominant empire, Gagosian Gallery, Beverly Hills was the very last spot (no pun intended) to host its public opening reception for Damien Hirst’s The Complete Spot Paintings 1986–2011.  The immaculate outpost in the world famous 90210 area code is currently showing twenty-three spotted paintings of various size spots and canvases.  Unlike every other venue, it has the proud distinction of exhibiting the very largest spot piece, Pivalic Acid [pictured above],  which measures an […]

Showing: Dan Colen – “Trash” @ Gagosian Gallery (Rome)

In anticipation of the ambitious Three Amigos three-part extravaganza – a series of three separate yet unified solo shows with Dan Colen, Nate Lowman, and Dash Snow at three different yet equally symbolic venues in Rome – Gagosian Gallery attempted to kick things off in advance with a solo from the one artist they represent; Dan Colen. Entitled Trash, the body of work is a massive departure from the body of work showing concurrently at Rome’s Palazzo Rospigliosi and stays true to its signifier in […]
