Brice Marden at Gagosian Grosvenor Hill, London, opens tomorrow, Tuesday, October 3, 6–8PM GMT. Don’t miss it!! Since resuming his engagement with “terre verte” Marden has begun layering oil paint of this single color, focusing his conditions in order to heighten them, so to speak. Thus “terre verte” is both medium “and” subject for Marden as he explores its chromatic nuances while reflecting on the material exigencies of painting itself. #BriceMarden #GagosianGrosvenorHill ____________________ Image: Installation view of Brice Marden’s exhibition at Gagosian, Grosvenor Hill, London Artwork © Brice Marden/ARS, NY and DACS, London 2017.

Early reports from London have Brice Marden’s show at Gagoisan’s Grosvenor Hill outpost selling out of all 10 paintings each with a price tag of $7.5m. That’s no indication that fair-goers came with their pockets full of spending money. But combined with strong sales in Asia this weekend, it does set the tone for Frieze.
