New Gagosian Bookstore Opening Friday

Gagosian Gallery

Art Daily has an inside look at the new bookstore at 988 Madison Avenue that Larry Gagosian (of the eponymous art gallery empire) will be soft opening Friday. Between the two blockbuster shows opening in his Chelsea galleries the night before (including one by Japanese Pop artist Takashi Murakami), and rumors that Gagosian will be opening its next outpost in Paris imminently, the gallery has been one of a select few maintaining a fervent pace of expansion during the economic downturn.
