We are getting to that time of the summer, where London gets a sporting focus for a few weeks, much to the chagrin of locals who probably get enough tourism as it is. But the arts programs and curation at some of London's top private galleries and public institutions have been spot on all year, and Gagosian Gallery has got into spirit with Warhol and Basquiat's 1985 collaboration, Olympic Rings.

You don't need us to tell you that Northumberland, England-born portrait artist Glenn Brown is extremely talented, and that his portraits look to the neo-classical, Renaissance masters as inspiration and that is broad paint strokes are incredibly intricate and compose an amazing picture. You have eyes for that.

This month, and starting this Thursday, Feburary 23, Richard Colman was invited by Gagosian Galley in Beverly Hills to create installations for the bathrooms of their main gallery space. We are going to digress and say it would be a trip to use the restroom inside a Richard Colman universe.

Last night we attended the opening of Damien Hirst’s worldwide exhibition of twenty-five years of spot paintings at the Gagosian Gallery in Beverly Hills. The exhibition takes place simultaneously across the world at all eleven of the Gagosian Gallery locations. Photos and more after the jump….

Way back in the good old days that was August, we noted that Damien Hirst was going to have a mega exhibit across all 11 Gagosian Gallery locations with The Complete Spot Paintings 1986-2011. With Hirst's retrospective at the Tate Modern set to open this April 2012, these January 12, 2012 openings for Spot Paintings should be a good precursor.

French icon Brigitte Bardot, even if you can't name one film she was ever in, has a very recognizable look. Andy Warhol knew it, too. An exhibition of Andy Warhol's portrait series of Bardot just opened at Gagosian Davies Street in London, with five of the works never being exhibited publicly before, and never together in series.

Gagosian Gallery will be starting off 2012 with quite a bang, exhibiting “Damien Hirst: The Complete Spot Paintings 1986-2011” across all 11 of their spaces in New York, London, Paris, Los Angeles, Rome, Athens, Geneva, and Hong Kong. This is the first time Gagosian has dedicated all locations at once to a body of work by one artist.

Sometimes you just have to look past the subject matter and enjoy the concept. Gagosian Gallery just announced Richard Phillips first short film, "Lindsay Lohan." Phillips takes the perpetual mess and explores "the legacies of classical portraiture in relation to the mediated representations of contemporary popular culture."

We were quite honored to have Gus Van Sant featured in our March 2011 issue of the magazine, and it is good timing that he has a collaborative show with Academy Award co-host and actor/writer/artist, James Franco. The exhibition, Unfinished, stems from Van Sant and Franco's time spent on the set of Milk and Van Sant opening the vaults to his My Own Private Idaho dailies to Franco. More after the jujmp . . .
