Gagosian Raises Funds with “An Exhibition for Notre Dame”

On June 11 in Paris, Gagosian Paris debuted “An Exhibition for Notre Dame,” nearly two months after the tragic fire that destroyed the roof and spires of the Notre Dame Cathedral. The exhibition (open through July 27) was conceived to honor and raise funds for the iconic Parisian structure, which was completed in 1345.

Aiding the cause are generous offerings donated by gallery artists—some of which created special works for the exhibition—including names like Patti Smith (who donated her 2010 work Joan the Soldier, Notre Dame Cathedral), Sterling Ruby, Cindy Sherman, Georg Baselitz, Marc Newsom, Ed Ruscha, Jenny Saville, Urs Fischer, Theaster Gates, and Takashi Murakami, whose piece To be titled has also been contributed.

“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 monument after watching, with devastation, as it was engulfed in flames,” said Larry Gagosian.

All proceeds from the exhibition will go to Friends of Notre-Dame de Paris, where they will be directed towards the restoration and renovation of the cathedral.
