Balthus at Gagosian Gallery

Balthus at Gagosian Gallery
Gagosian Gallery, Geneva
From 26 April to 29 July 2017

 

Gagosian is pleased to present a career-spanning exhibition of Balthus’s paintings, drawings, and photography. Prepared in collaboration with the artist’s estate, it is the first exhibition of his work in Switzerland since 2008. Balthus was a reclusive painter of charged and disquieting narrative scenes. Skirting avant-garde movements such as Surrealism, he cultivated a self-taught classicism in his representations of the physical and psychic struggles of adolescence. In his first gallery exhibition in 1934, his voyeuristic depictions of pubescent female subjects brooding with uneasy dreams scandalized Parisian audiences.

Claude Rutault at Galerie Perrotin

Galerie Perrotin, Hong Kong
From 26 May to 30 June 2017

 

Perrotin Hong Kong presents the fourth exhibition dedicated to the conceptual painter Claude Rutault at the gallery, and his first exhibition in Asia. The devices of the radical, original and poetic œuvre of this major artist upend the status of the author and of the work of art, questioning even the definition of a painting itself as a finished and autonomous object. In 1973, Claude Rutault painted a 20 x 20 cm canvas the same color as the wall in his kitchen. He quickly formalized this founding gesture with the first de-finition/method: “a stretched canvas painted the same color as the wall on which it’s hung. All commercially available formats can be used, be they rectangular, square, round or oval.”

Until September 03, 2017
MUDAM LUXEMBOURG

 

The exhibition by Tony Cragg at Mudam Luxembourg does not aspire to be a retrospective. Bringing together a selection of sculptures from the past twenty or so years, it aims to present the diversity and energy characterising the work of this internationally renowned and tremendously productive artist. Although Cragg approaches questions of form and material not unlike a traditional sculptor, he firmly believes that any imaginable material can be a carrier of meaning, imagination and emotions.
