Notre-Dame is one of the most widely recognized symbols of the city of Paris and the French nation. I wish to contribute to the reconstruction of this iconic cathedral after watching, with devastation, as it was engulfed in flames. Gagosian will mount an exhibition at the Paris gallery in June to support the rebuilding of this irreplaceable historical monument. – Larry Gagosian
