During Frieze Week, Gagosian Gallery’s Britannia Street outpost in London will present a solo show of work by Franz West, who passed away over the summer. West was “actively engaged with the preparation of this exhibition” up until his death, according to a press release.

The show is called “Man with a Ball” and will include ” a forest of standing sculptures the size of small people,” a three-dimensional depiction of Ludwig Wittgenstein’s signature and West’s collage work, among other things.

The exhibition opens Oct. 9 and will run until Nov. 10.
