Jeff Wall Goes to Gagosian


Marian Goodman is renowned for, among other things, inspiring loyalty in her artists, and many have shown with her for decades, so it’s a bit of a surprise to see that the photographer Jeff Wall, who has shown with her since 1989, is leaving her gallery and heading to Gagosian.

This comes from the New York Times, which has Gogo director Mark Francis explaining, “He would like to be seen more widely as an American artist. I think that may be something we can do well.” Goodman, keeping it cool as always, says, “We worked together for 25 good years.”

Wall will now be gallery mates with big-gun photographers like Andreas Gursky, Gregory Crewdson, and Richard Avedon, whose estate is repped by Gagosian.
