May 15 sees the eagerly anticipated opening of the Gagosian Gallery’s new show featuring Andreas Gursky. Interest, already high, will surely have been boosted by the world record price of US$4.3mm achieved for Gursky’s work “Rhein II” at Christies , New York last November. The price made this the most expensive photograph ever sold.
The exhibition combines Gursky’s most recent work with earlier works, in monumental large-scale formats as well as smaller formats, to show a comprehensive range and provide the context for a broader appreciation of his oeuvre by new audiences. Notably, the exhibition includes the Bangkok series of 2011, representing a bold new direction in his work, alongside some of his best-known images such as the iconic 99 Cent II (2001) – previously the most expensive photograph ever sold at US$3.4mm - and Pyong Yang IV (2007), as well as a selection of the first pictures he made as an artist, taken in Hong Kong in 1994.
From May 15-June 16
