Current market darling Thomas Houseago has parted ways with his New York dealer Michael Werner gallery, which represented the artist starting in 2010.

Michael Werner Director Gordon VeneKlasen confirmed that the break happened about a year ago, writing in a short e-mail, “I’d rather talk about the artists I do work with rather than comment further on this.”

In 2011 the artist joined Hauser & Wirth in London (earlier this year, the gallery opened a new 23,000-square-foot space in Chelsea). This month’s issue of Frieze magazine includes an announcement that Gagosian Gallery will host a Houseago show at its Rome branch from July 4 through July 26. Mr. Houseago also currently has a show up at the Storm King Art Center, in Mountainville, N.Y., which runs through Nov. 11.
