ATHENS.- Opened in 1979 in New York by Larry Gagosian, Gagosian Gallery is one of the world's foremost modern and contemporary art galleries and one of the few that can lay claim to a truly global reach. With the addition of the Athens space, there are now nine locations worldwide, including New York, Beverly Hills, London, Rome, and Hong Kong.

Over the last three decades, Gagosian Gallery has presented countless memorable exhibitions of leading international artists including Georg Baselitz, Cecily Brown, Walter De Maria, Douglas Gordon, Richard Hamilton, Damien Hirst, Howard Hodgkin, Mike Kelley, Anselm Kiefer, Jeff Koons, Yayoi Kusama, Richard Prince, Ed Ruscha, Jenny Saville, Richard Serra, Cindy Sherman, Philip Taaffe, Cy Twombly, Piotr Uklański, Franz West, Rachel Whiteread, and Christopher Wool.

Parallel to this dynamic and diverse contemporary program, Gagosian Gallery has mounted ambitious, museum-quality exhibitions of the work of such modern masters as Francis Bacon, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Joseph Beuys, Willem de Kooning, Alberto Giacometti, Roy Lichtenstein, Pablo Picasso, David Smith, and Andy Warhol. The recent, highly acclaimed Picasso exhibition "Mosqueteros" in New York drew almost 100,000 viewers in ten weeks. The exhibitions are accompanied by the scholarly monographs, innovative catalogues, and limited editions that comprise Gagosian's unparalleled publishing program.

Gagosian Gallery is known for elegant, distinctive exhibition spaces with clean, classical lines. The Athens location, designed by Michelle Ballard, occupy 90 square meters of ground floor space in the very center of the city, just steps away from Syntagma Square and the Greek Parliament. It will be a showcase for artists represented by Gagosian Gallery as well as a platform of information for exhibitions on view in Gagosian Gallery's other locations around the world.

The inaugural exhibition, Cy Twombly: "Leaving Paphos Ringed with Waves" will open to the public on September 25, 2009.
