Nude: From Modigliani to Currin at Gagosian New York

The Human Body from Modernism to Present Day If you happen to be in New York between 20th September and 29th October, then do yourself a favour and make sure you go see the Nude: From Modigliani to Currin exhibition at Gagosian Gallery on 980 Madison Avenue.

According to Kenneth Clark, ‘the nude is not the subject of art, but a form of art’, and so this magnificent event presents depictions of the human body, from the eve of Modernism to the present day. From Paul Cézanne’s Baigneurs and Baigneurs Debout, and Edvard Munch’s harrowing Madonna to Charles Ray’s Young Man, this exhibition considers the nude as an infinitely suggestive material...

Sally Mann at Gagosian Gallery NY

Remembered Light: Cy Twombly in Lexington Sally Mann is known and regarded for her images of intimate and familiar subjects, rendered sublime and disquieting: children, landscape, family, and the nature of mortality. In previous projects, she explored the relationship between parent and child, husband and wife, brother and sister, nature and history. In this latest exhibition of colour and black-an-white photographs taken between 1999 and 2012, Mann records fleeting impressions in the working habitat of the late Cy Twombly, her close friend and mentor.
