Gagosian Gallery just keeps on growing

Founded in Los Angeles, Gagosian Gallery’s global outreach is now more than 170,000 sq. ft—more than four times the planned extension of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. The Art Newspaper calculates that the total square footage of Gagosian worldwide, including its new space in London’s Grosvenor Hill, is 172,163 sq. ft. This new gallery will be the 15th in an empire that spans four continents, and the opening exhibition will be dedicated to the late artist Cy Twombly, whose works have inaugurated several Gagosian galleries. The show, which will include previously unseen paintings from the Bacchus series, is organised in collaboration with the Cy Twombly Foundation. It is scheduled to open on 8 October (until 12 December), before the Frieze Art Fair.
