Gagosian Gallery launches the Brice Marden exhibition at its new home in Athens
Gagosian presents an exhibition of paintings on marble and works on paper by American artist and long-term Hydra-resident Brice Marden to inaugurate the gallery’s new location in Athens. This will be Marden’s first solo exhibition in Greece in four decades.
WHAT: In 1981, while summering in his home on Hydra, Greece, Marden began painting on small slabs of white marble from local quarries. The resulting compositions, continuing over two decades, feature bars and fields of subtle color that tint and accentuate each stone’s dimensions, edges, unique veining and inherent textural variations. Also on view will be a group of ink drawings by Marden that employ gridded compositions and calligraphic approaches to mark making, and relate closely to the marble works.
WHEN:From September 24 Until December 19
WHERE: Gagosian Gallery: Anapiron Polemou Str. Athens, Tel: +30.210.364.0215,
