Giacometti meets Lindbergh @ Gagosian

Photography is now eclipsing almost everything. Thanks largely to social media sites Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, if an event has not been photographed, it hasn’t been documented and it never really happened. Now seems like a fitting time then, for Gagosian to be showing the sculptural masterpieces of Alberto Giacometti in photographic form, which are […]

Cy Twombly @ Centre Pompidou and Gagosian, Paris

Cy Twombly is undoubtedly my favourite artist, yet, despite my infatuation with his work, I know very little about him. I have recently returned from a weekend in Paris.

The exhibition puts one […]

The Show is Over @ Gagosian

When most people think about art they think about painting. The Gagosian believes however, that the era of painting is over and presents us with a more abstract view of art. The show is a modern look at abstraction. However, I think the title is wrong. Many of the images do in fact involve paint. […]
