Press release

In parallel with the exhibition ‘UGO RONDINONE : I ♥ GIORNO’ at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, Almine Rech Gallery is pleased to present ‘GOD IS MAN MADE’, John Giorno's fourth solo exhibition at the gallery. The exhibition will feature exclusively new works from his recent series ‘Rainbow Paintings’.

John Giorno was born in 1936 in New York. After graduating from Columbia University, Giorno moved to the Bowery in the mid-1960s where he joined a vibrant art scene. He quickly became close with Brion Gysin, William Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg and Andy Warhol, featuring in the latter's famous movie ‘Sleep’ (1963). At the crossroads between poetry, visual arts, music and performance, the work of this key figure of the American underground scene has been an influence on several generations of artists such as Elizabeth Peyton, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Pierre Huyghes and Ugo Rondinone.[…]
