Derek Blasberg to Join Gagosian Gallery

Derek Blasberg, who is currently Editor-at-Large of Harper’s Bazaar, Vmagazine, and VMAN, has been added to the Gagosian Gallery staff in an unspecified position, though Larry Gagosian said “I think he will make a valuable contribution” in a statement sent out this afternoon. No stranger to the upper echelons of the art and fashion worlds, Blasberg profiled supermodel Stephanie Seymour and sons Peter and Harry Brant for Harper’s Bazaar just this week.

“Derek brings a new perspective to the gallery, and as one of the leading media voices in fashion and the creative arts, I think he will make a valuable contribution,” Gagosian said in a statement. “Our aim is to create a diverse program, to inspire our audience and promote our artists. I look forward to working with Derek to broaden our reach.”

In the same release Blasberg said, “I’ve been fortunate to work with some of the most innovative minds in fashion, film, publishing, and art. I am confident that the interplay between these industries will enhance my work at Gagosian Gallery.”
