Gagosian Gallery announces the death of artist Richard Artschwager:
With great sadness we acknowledge the death of Richard Artschwager at the age of 89, just days after his second Whitney Museum retrospective “Richard Artschwager!” ended. For more than five decades, Richard forged a richly maverick path, confounding the genres and limits of art while forever changing how we view and understand space and the everyday objects that occupy it. His work has been the subject of many important exhibitions, including the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (1988 and 2012–13); Centre Pompidou, Paris (1989); Deutsche Guggenheim, Berlin (2003); and Kunstmuseum Winterthur (2003) and is included in many museum collections worldwide, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Art Institute of Chicago, Museum Ludwig Cologne, and Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, Paris. “Richard Artschwager!” will tour to the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles and the Haus der Kunst, Munich later this year.
