Gagosian Gallery was founded in 1980, initially in partnership with the dealer, Leo Castelli, in SoHo. Since then, the gallery has produced museum-quality shows using its unprecedented global presence—16 exhibition spaces designed by world-renowned architects, including Caruso St John, Richard Meier, and Jean Nouvel. In addition to a vibrant contemporary program, the gallery often presents historical exhibitions focusing on artists like Andy Warhol and Picasso. Gagosian is also known for its publishing arm, which produces artist monologues and exhibition catalogues, and its quarterly magazine.
