On May 15, Andreas Gursky celebrated the opening of his first solo exhibition in style at the Gagosian Gallery.
Nearly 120 New York art aficionados stepped out to congratulate the artist on the exhibition, his first in Asia.
Famous for his large-scale landscape photographs, German-born Gursky is one of the most influential photographers in the world. The artist’s Rhine II sold for $4.3 million at Christie’s New York in 2011. His latest exhibition combines his most recent work, the large-scale, Bangkok series, with earlier works in varying size formats.
After the cocktail, guests were escorted to Grand Hyatt Hong Kong, where they enjoyed a sumptuous meal at the hotel’s pool house.
Hosted by Nick Simunovic, managing director of Gagosian Gallery – Asia, notable guests are Larry Gagosian, Maja Hoffman, Stephen and Yana Peel, Alan Lo, Takashi Murakami, Lars Nittve, Magnus Renfrew and Zeng Fanzhi.
