Almine Rech opened its doors on April 1st, 1997 in the 13th arrondissement in Paris. The gallery was founded on an axis of California Minimal, Perceptual art and Conceptual art, representing artists such as James Turrell, John McCracken and Joseph Kosuth.
In addition to its stable of internationally recognised, mid-career and emerging artists, it has always been the gallery's mission to continually seek out and include new artists in its program, opening especially to painters.
The gallery has held long standing relationships with artists like John McCracken and James Turrell and has since started working with and representing artists such as Karel Appel, Farah Atassi, Genieve Figgis, Alex Israel, Jeff Koons, Nathaniel Mary Quinn, Taryn Simon, Vaughn Spann, Vivian Springford, Claire Tabouret, Antoni Tàpies, Genesis Tramaine and De Wain Valentine, among others.
Almine Rech is pleased to announce Allen Jones’ second solo exhibition with the gallery, featuring recent works. The exhibition will largely concentrate on new works including paintings hitherto not shown before, including empty yet beautifully lit theatre interiors - a subject remarkably resonant in our current peculiar times.
‘No Man is an Island’: Group Exhibition
‘Social distancing’, ’Self-isolation’, ‘Lock-down’, these words have been used more frequently than ever to express the deprivation of the simple pleasures born in the proximity of a social set-up. Simple pleasures that encompass and underline our most fundamental right: Life. In response to the events related to the Covid-19 pandemic, Almine Rech London is pleased to present ‘No Man is an Island’, a group exhibition that explores the beautiful intricacies that celebrate the love of life. The exhibition will include works by Rhea Dillon, Madelynn Green, Li Qing, Sally Saul, George Rouy and Francesco Vezzoli.
