What We're Reading: Who is Gagosian's new director and curator?
Antwaun Sargent, who for about a decade, has written about and curated exhibitions devoted to Black artists, as ArtNews reported, has been named Gagosian's new director and curator. His first show, according to The New York Times, will examine what he calls “notions of Black space.”
Sargent, according to ArtNews, aims to promote artists of color within the gallery. The article quotes him saying,
“I have always been interested in the ways in which we can reframe the conversation around some of the voices that have been left out,” he said. “I’m also interested in notions of community and how artists work within communities and how works are informed by their links to community.”
