New Renzo Piano Exhibition at the Gagosian: Fragments

Mar 10, 2014

From June 27th through August 2nd, the Gagosian Gallery will be presenting “Fragments,” an exhibition that showcases the stunning works of one of the most recognized architects of our era, Renzo Piano.

The exhibition spans thirty years of Renzo’s work and consists of 24 tabletop displays of scale models, drawings, photographs and video. These displays provide an intriguing story arc and unique insight into a building’s intricate design process. The projects shown in Fragments include the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; the Menil Collection, Houston; Kansai International Airport, Osaka; Fondation Beyeler, Basel; The New York times Building, New York and the Whitney Museum’s new building in downtown Manhattan.

Renzo Piano’s work is known worldwide and respected for his mastery of light.  He was born during 1937 in Genoa, Italy to a family of builders and he naturally followed in the family trade. He is a Pritzker Prize-winning architect.  Critic Nicolai Ouroussof once described Renzo Piano’s work by saying that the “serenity of his buildings can almost make you believe that we live in a civilized world.”

The new Renzo Piano Building Workshop “Fragments” takes place at the Gagosian for Friday, June 27 to August 2nd, 2013.
