Gagosian Names a New Director and Curator

Antwaun Sargent, a critic and author, plans to work with artists who are thinking about contemporary issues around identity, desire and representation.

Gagosian, the global gallery known for ambitious exhibitions, has added a 32-year-old director and curator, Antwaun Sargent, whose first show will examine what he calls “notions of Black space.”

Sargent, who will be based in New York City, is joining the gallery after a decade as a writer and a critic whose work has been published by The New Yorker, The New York Times and other outlets.
