One of London’s hottest contemporary art galleries, visitors flock to this vast space, part of US super-dealer Larry Gagosian’s ever-expanding empire. Located off the usual gallery circuit in King’s Cross, it attracts a select crowd of art buffs, students and the odd scenester. The layout is very visitor-friendly with one main room and two smaller ones. Despite its small size Gagosian has hosted shows by seriously big names such as Howard Hodgkin and Francesco Clemente, plus a second tier of fashionable US and European artists including Carsten Höller and Cecily Brown.
"Picasso: Minotaurs and Matadors" is now on view at Gagosian Grosvenor Hill, London through August 25, 2017
Presented in partnership with Pablo Picasso’s grandson, Bernard Ruiz-Picasso and curated by Sir John Richardson, the exhibition examines the intersection of Picasso's bullfighting imagery with his mythological and biographical compositions of the 1930s. Including works dating from 1889 to 1971, this career-long survey traces Picasso’s engagement with the ancient rituals and narratives of his native Mediterranean.

"Jeff Koons" opens tonight, April 27, at Gagosian Beverly Hills from 6–8PM PT.
Koons draws attention to the continuity of images as they pass through time. The "Gazing Ball" series is grounded in distinctive narratives and art-historical precedents—from ancient classical sculpture to Rubens and Manet. For more details, click on the link in the bio.
