To celebrate the tenth anniversary of the gallery’s central location in Paris, Gagosian presents Bustes de Femmes, a group exhibition focused on female portraiture. Spanning a breadth of stylistic and conceptual approaches, the paintings, sculptures, and photographs will demonstrate how the female figure has been reimagined and reconfigured by modern and contemporary artists of diverse backgrounds and traditions

Expanding upon the theme and format of the gallery’s first booth at FIAC, in 2010, Bustes de Femmes will be presented in environments both real and virtual designed by architect India Mahdavi, known for her vibrant interiors. For this exhibition, Mahdavi will juxtapose each work on view with a fresh and joyful hue from her 2019 color collection Flowers.

 Bustes de Femmes will include an online presentation that continues and extends the exhibition, to make these works available to a wider international audience during this time of limited accessibility.
