Larry Gagosian’s gallery—a massive, maze-like layout of beautifully lit rooms—is considered by many to be the cornerstone of the art scene in Chelsea. His gallery shows often gather as much attention as any show at a major modern art museum, and they have included installations from Richard Serra, John Currin, De Kooning and the always-shocking but extremely relevant works of Damien Hirst.
Sometime we don’t even realize how fortunate we are to live in New York City and witness art history in the making. The Gagosian Gallery with a location on West 24 Street, and one on Madison and 76 Street, is perhaps one of the most influential factors in determining the course of contemporary art. The artists that hang on their walls today, might fill up the pages of history books tomorrow. Gagosian is not just another art gallery, Gagosian might be the most important gallery out there. They have the power to influence the art movement, determine prices, and make contemporary artist masters. Being an observer and a passionate art lover, I consider it a privilege to be able to walk into Gagosian and have a Murakami, Richard Prince, or Roy Lichtenstei in front of my eyes.
