Art dealer Larry Gagosian in Moscow?

Art dealer Larry Gagosian has announced that he will mount an exhibition of more than 100 works by 50 postwar and contemporary artists in a former chocolate factory near the Kremlin this fall.
The show will also inaugurate Red October, a 19th-century former chocolate factory on the Moscow River, as a new arts center.

The show titled "For What You Are About to Receive," is Gagosian's second in the Russian capital, and runs from September 18 through October 25.

Russia, now in its 10th year of economic growth, is the world's second-biggest oil exporter. According to Forbes, the number of Russian billionaires jumped to 110 in 2008 from 36 in 2004. This new wealthy class is eager to spend on luxury items and fine art.
